Our Malls are shutting down!

Has anyone else noticed that all the malls are losing stores? I don't go often, but every time I do go, it seems another one has bit the dust. I wonder what's going on, when I was a kid the Mall was were I lived. Kids don't hang out there any more?

I was about to say, he must be going to Highland and North Cross.

I don't even know if North Cross is there anymore.

Barton is still hopping. Northcross is Wal-Mart now and Highland is too ghetto, I feel like I'm going to get stabbed thinking about going there.

I have family by Highland, they used to have a Bubble Tea stand, last time I was in there, there were three places open in the food court, not a one my Bubble Tea stand.

It's not just malls. A lot of businesses in strip centers are also closing down. I've noticed it not just around Austin, but around Denver and Boulder Colorado, too. The dry cleaners I've used for years recently shut their doors.
