-- 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

I've been to some mall in Costa Mesa that has dresses more expensive than my car. I bet they're profitable selling two dresses a month in some of those stores. I should just hang out there and kidnap women as they come out.

Here in the Midwest we had Mr Bulky's and that meant chocolate covered rat turds.

Thanks for the hard data. In considering the amount of retail spend in the US, or a given state, ~10% is a signicant $ amount now that I take a minute to think on it.

It’s hard to reconcile the large amount of brick and mortar retailer closings with that seemingly low percentage of ecommerce shopping. In just 2018 Toys R Us, Ann Taylor, Walgreens, Kmart, The Gap, Footlocker, and more have closed all or a large number of their stores.

Of course, but stores closing their doors has been around well before e-commerce became a thing. Think of stores that existed in malls 20 years ago. Many are out of business while new stores have opened and thrived. That is still happening.

Past life connections. Now I deal with it more on a real estate level.

But what do you mean by “of all people”??

Sure, that makes sense.
But none of those stores were Sears, Kmart, Macy’s, Toys R Us, Radio Shack, etc. There has never been a time when the major retailers were disappearing from the brick and mortar like they are now.

Or malls closing.

I’m not rooting against brick and mortar, quite the opposite. There doesn’t seem to be any question that the retail landscape is being remade like never before. How that settles out in the end will be interesting to see.

A positive possibility for commercial real estate space formerly occupied by closed stores:

Indoor malls have been dying a slow death for years.

Outdoor malls are still thriving.

The last mall I was in was the Fair Oaks Mall in Fairfax VA. I was there several times to pay my Verizon bill, buy a pair of shoes at Clark's and some other insignificant crap. 6-7 years ago.

I spend little to no time in ANY mall and the mall I grew up with in NJ was one of the FIRST malls ever built by the DeBartolo family of San Francisco 49ers's fame and owners.

The crappy POS mall is still there with Sears, Sterns, JC Penney's and Macy's as the 4 major anchors.

I've been in a mall about 5 times in the last 30 years, 3 times to find the property manager for my job.
