    Malls evolved while I was living in NYC and so never really experienced them until I moved out west. by then those I saw were pretty uniform and had all the same stores. So this doesn't impact me as much but like everything it is changing.

    It's been changing for over twenty years! Older established Department Stores Faded Away or Were Purchased by other. Once it was: Buffums, Robinsons, May Co., Broadway, Saks 5th Avenue, I. Magnins, Joseph Magnin's and many others, where are they now! Next, Outlets, Outlets, Outlets! Then next came the seconds or flaw markets of Marshal's & Ross, among others, the market has changed. Let's face it, you can only sell so man7y goods to so many people, and the Mall must change or fade away as so many others have.

    Our malls are getting pretty cool around here now. They are in the process of remodeling and adding new stores to two of the malls close to me. They are looking awesome!

    stores go in and out of business at the malls all the time! and alot of malls have closed. I have a feeling they will become extinct.

    Tommy...people buy stuff online now anyways!
    I rarely visit malls unless I am out of town in another state. New York isn't famous for big malls and I shop mostly online anyway. Much easier and faster.

    Well, Tommy, here's the 411!
    That would be because all the little kiddies who seem to think the mall is the place to go in the evenings to run around and act stupid have run the adults out of the malls, and the adults are the ones who spend the "real" money -- so the malls seem to be going out of business for the most part! Parents -- Don't let the malls be your Friday and Saturday night babysitters!!!!!

    Thanks. You can tell I'm behind the times as far as malls go. I haven't been to one in probably 15 years. I can do everything I need to do here on the edge of Miami where you can park close to the store.
  • whatever 2008/04/11 10:56:44
    :-) hmmmm to be honest I had never even heard of Westfield until you just mentioned it.
