Rochester is facing a similar problem although its downtown is far more modern than Winona's. For our neighbors to the west are overcrowded with shopping centers and it is common knowledge that when the newest one, half a mile west of Crossroads center opens, both J. C. Penney Co. and Montgomery Ward will leave the downtown area. Sears Roebuck already is located at Crossroads just as Montgomery Ward moved out of downtown into Miracle Mall here.
