-- 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

It's tough to differentiate personal mall patronization patterns from population-wide patterns. As people age, their daily need for new stuff goes down. So everyone thinking of their own experiences says 'sure, I go less than I used to.'

That is, unless they are hauling kids there, or otherwise going there to get things for an expanding family.

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.

And things are moving fast, too. 15 years ago, St. Louis Mills was brand new. 2-3 years ago, I went there during the holidays and it was packed. It's been closed [or nearly so] for over a year, and part of it is soon to be converted to a church facility.

Edit - right at 2 years since it's nearly closed

Check out how huge and new and clean, . . and empty

do you have family up there? Interesting - Pennsylvania has a lot of dead malls - one of the leading states in dead malls, actually.

Agreed. Went alot as a newly married adult (got crap to buy), then tapered off alot when the kids were young, and now go there more as the kids tastes have morphed into something where they want stuff at malls. I've gone more in the last 1-2 years than I had in the 5 or more before that.

And to answer the OP question -- like 2 weeks ago.
