🏗️ Another Mall Bites the Dust
« Reply #300 on: March 17, 2021, 02:28:31 PM »
My ex-neighbor from across the parking lot who bought my SUV went into Anchorage today to hit a closeout sale of Burlington at the Northfield Mall, which I think was once the largest one in Alaska.  I was there once when I first got up here.  It is apparently now another of the innumerable Ghost Town Malls sprinkled across the country.

...and the collapse beat goes on.

It isn't only because of online shopping, it's also more people don't have disposable income to 'shop til u drop'. Notice also on a 40c day the mall is packed, not because everyone suddenly wanted new threads, because wandering around in the air-conditioned mall is cheaper than running their own.

here is an interesting link to things replaced by smartphones.

Think of how many stores selling all these devices were in malls.
If its important then try something, fail, disect, learn from it, try again, and again and again until it kills you or you succeed.
