Here are my predictions on what store would go out in the near future:

* Sears
* Kmart
* Gymboree
* Pretty much almost every store that has mostly mall locations would close their stores

Here are the ones that we've already lost since the last post in this thread:

* Aeropostale
* Blockbuster
* Brothers (the boys version of Justice for Girls)
* 77 Kids (the kiddie version of American Eagle Outfitters)
* The Limited
* Radio Shack
* HH Gregg
* Gander Mountain

I had lunch there yesterday.  Had not eaten there in some time, mainly because the store was extremely busy, and it was difficult to place my order, eat and get back to work in time.

No such problem yesterday.  The parking lot, which is usually jammed, was half-full.
I have never before walked in there and found less than six or seven people in line ahead of me.
Yesterday I immediately walked up and placed my order.

It seems the negative publicity over people getting sick in their restaurants is really
having an effect on business.  Granted this particular store has a big construction project
going on right next to it, which might be scaring away some business.  But the effects of
the news stories appears to have been devastating.

As usual my food was tasty and I did not get sick.

Or you can just post them here directly and then there is no issue, like this old Grand Union shot (not even sure if it's one I had or one that is from the site previously, just a handy test item).

Just click the additional options below where you type a reply, then use the attach line and give it the file name from your whatever.

OH CRAP, well I know what I'm doing this weekend. I haven't been their in years but when I was there kmart and sears provided a good bit of foot traffic for the mall so not a shock to hear they are closing since both those stores are long gone.

I suppose it would depend on several different things:

1.  If both items were being done at once (after all, if there is a concert that may draw a large crowd at one time, that would provide enough demand for both the existing food locations and some temporary trucks, where not having the extra options might overwhelm the existing locations).

2. Weather - if a concert is being held and it's 95 degrees out, one would think that many of the attendees would want to run into the mall for food during or after, just to enjoy the cooler temps inside rather than eating at the places outside.

3. What is allowed - it would make sense to try to only offer food trucks that sell things not already available in the mall - that would be similar to having another non competing restaurant move into the food court.

They could set up a stage in the center court of a mall to help draw people into a mall for a free concert to lure in customers to do some shopping and dining. They could also hire some clowns to make balloon animals for the kids, and a magician to perform a magic act. The carnival idea is a great idea as well.

When my mall used to host things on a stage (Maybe they still do no idea) it was always either targeted towards family's with children or older people, which is fine but the demographic they need to survive is 20-40 somethings and I don't really see them having a concert at a mall that would appeal to that audience.

I am against putting restrictions on kids at a shopping mall or any other public place. What we need to do instead is teach our kids to follow the rules.

Agreed, can you imagine an adults only mall where nobody under 18 is allowed at the mall at all?

I also agree with this, I remember when I was a teenager the mall by my girlfriends house had a stupid rule of no one under 18 without a parent after 6pm on a weekend and while they never bothered us they kicked out groups of 3+ people. The worst part is every time they kicked kids out they weren't bothering anyone and it's just stupid you're going to kick a 17 year old out of a mall for what? Even as a adult that still pisses me off.
