-- Malls dying? Soon to be gone? - a question...

Hi guys,

When's the last time you've stepped foot inside of a mall? I used to love to shop and I'll say it's been over 3 years for me.

Just wanting to get the general consensus on this. No poll - just post your answer.

Thanks

This brings up a tangentially related question regarding consumer patterns.

How much does price affect you when you have full autonomy?

By this I mean, I can understand 'indulging' in outlandishly priced stuff when you are captive. $15 hot dogs at the ball park. $5 water at a concert.

And I can understand indulging [or not caring] about outlandish prices when it's part of the experience. $1K champagne at a strip club. $100 sandwich at a country club, etc.

What I can't, and can't even imagine being wealthy enough to, reconcile is simply enjoying a burger that is 2-3x times the price of a burger that is just down the road, simply to avoid going down the road.

I went to Burlington Coat Factory one time at the Great Mall. It smelled like shit. I think somebody shit on the coats. Then I saw Dane Cook walking around.

Wish I knew how to imbed videos. I took some footage of the inside of a mall I was at in March. Looked like a scene from a post apocalyptic movie. Took me about 5 minutes of walking around before I saw an open store or another human being

I went to mid rivers mall a couple of weeks ago. I’m in a wedding party and had to go to men’s wearhouse. That was dogshit. Asshats tried to sell me a suit for $400. I’m Renting one for $179. I think if your in the military you should be able to wear you ASU. They tried to sell me a shirt, shoes, socks everything. What a rip off. They suck. Sad thing is other poor fools we’re in there buying everything they suggested. Undershirts underwear, people go to goodwill.

Those are all the Anchor stores that bring people in. The malls near us in the far west Chicago burbs are all failing or they are changing over from stores into places like escape houses and bowling, entertainment places rather than retail.

There's a small mall in St Charles that is being torn down and replaced by Condos.

Macy's still has anchor stores at the big malls, Woodfield and Oak Brook but those aren't as close as the smaller malls are to us.

I do some xmas shopping at the mall. Maybe stop by here and there for a birthday gift or something.

It's not my thing really. But sometimes when you have no gift ideas its good to be able to go into an actual store and see what's available.

Oak Park Mall's closer. So I go there if I go to a mall. When I lived closer to Independence Center I went there. Kids were more of an issue at IC than at OP. The people shopping there were mostly the suburban housewife spending her husband's money, or people where English was not their first language or it wasn't their parent's either

I rarely shop malls anymore, but I'm in them a lot. I do network and POS system upgrades and repairs. They seem to be pretty busy when I'm there. But really, the only indoor malls are Battlefield Mall in Springfield and NorthPark Mall in Joplin.

Back to your talking of teenagers and old people.
Burlington, MA by chance? I've been to the Legal attached to that mall many times as it's next to my companies offices. Not bad at all, but it's kind of a chain in that there are something like 20 locations.

Somewhere in Boston. IIRC it was attached to a mall. This was 15 years ago.

Oh and I was reluctant to go there because I knew it was sort of a chain. But you listen to the locals, and they were correct, it was great.

Our mall has a small kids play area not far from the food court. Having the little man, we've gone in a few times. Plus, he loves to people watch.

Enclosed malls seem to be nearing extinction, although there are certainly exceptions.

I just had lunch today with the CEO of a fashion company, and we were talking about this supposed death of retail due to online shopping. His answer was that 92% of retail transactions are still done face to face. 8% are done online.

That's a higher number than in the past, but a far cry from the doom and gloom for retail that many speak of.
