"Irregardless is a word" the article starts with, and has been in use since 1795.

Re: Downtown Retail News

A couple months after I moved to Minneapolis and wanted to go to Brooks Brothers I couldn't find it. Once I realized it was in the skyway, I still circled around a couple times before finding it.
