It's tough to argue with the logic, though, that the virtual environment has replaced the mall environment, both as a place to gather for leisure and a place to obtain consumer goods.

Between Amazon and Facebook [ie, online shopping and social media], there's less of an imperative to go somewhere for either socialization or consumerism.
hmm interesting angle.
