I agree that pining for big retail to return to Downtown Crossing is a waste of time. It can bearly support Macy's, which already exists in every tourist's hometown anyway (as does Target, etc.). A store like Trader Joe's will only open when there is a critical mass of residents who would walk there to shop, thus justifying staying open past 5:15 when all the other workers are heading for South Station. The city needs to keep focusing on residential construction and the retail operations to support (and profit from) the residents will follow.
