I’ve never been a big fan of going to the mall.

In the local paper yesterday I read an article about malls and retailing.  There was a quote from the CEO of a company that owns and manages malls.

He spoke about trends in retailing and then there was this…

He said that malls need to become a destination, a welcoming place, something like a downtown.

Umm, yeah, but we already have places that are destinations and welcoming.

They are called downtowns.
