Americas malls seek a life beyond retail
The life after retail is called the village.
Why drive / park when you can walk from your home to your cafe-barber-gallery-cleaner-hotel-convenience store etc.
Save the car for bulk purchases at Walmart-Sams-Costco-Lowes.
Most everything else can be had on-line.
Welcome to the 21st Century.

Aging customers who used to shop at malls can no longer deal with the amount of walking required. Even large box stores can seem foreboding.
