DD, I hear your frustration but an uplift is what everyone is looking for. Incomes of various levels living close to each other. That's a vibrant taxpaying community and what a downtown should strive for.
A bit more discretionary income is what will bring more services downtown. Too much money raises costs and drives out part of that mix. Its a delicate balance.

Lakesides excellent observations of how big businesses prefer homogenous consumers driving maximum profitability needs addressing. Presumably a mid-level store with a slightly wider range of priced goods would provide the best solution.
The bigger question is then to provide meaningful jobs for everyone in that same community.
