-- 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 know it catches a lot of shit - but in the early y2k's - Burlington ruled for men's clothes - they were one of the few that carried double RL at a discount.

I worked a second job in a mall. So the last time I stepped foot in a mall was May.

I did however see them dying off. All that visit are young kids and thieves.

That's a higher number than in the past, but a far cry from the doom and gloom for retail that many speak of.
Maybe within the specific fashion sector in which he operates those numbers are close to accurate. Overall, given the volume of ecommerce that now occurs, those numbers don’t appear to match reality.
Of course we’d need to see what is being defined by “retail”. Does that include groceries, automobiles for instance?

about to post basically this same thing - and who knew that doomy (of all people) dealt with fashion conglomerates?

I've done a big study of shopping patterns in Colorado, and the proportion of shopping online more or less matched what doomy said. It's big in some sectors and non-existent in others, but when you look at everything people buy, it was less than 10 percent in the study that I did. That might have included restaurant spending, which isn't exactly online-eligible, but even so, online is smaller than most people think.

I think the malls in SOCAL are different as many shops tend to cater to a higher end clientele. Jewelry stores are one example of this. Growing up in KC, I never saw a mall carry high end jewelry, like Rolex and Patek Phillipe watches...you would have to go the Plaza for stuff like that. SOCAL malls have stores with items like that available. Plus the SOCAL mall has a high concentration of 'better' eating places etc. Midwest malls had hotdogs, pizza and Orange Julius stands.
