Paramus is in Bergen County which is one of the wealthiest counties in the country. Besides Nordstrom, one of the anchor stores is Neiman-Marcus and there are other high end retail stores in the mall.
Not to cheer random nutjob shooters, but I wouldn’t at all mind the higher-ends of society getting their trees shaken good and hard. It’s always a good thing for the wealthy to be reminded from time to time that for all their money and trendy trappings, they are as equally vulnerable as us. Their froo-froo fashion shops with ‘no guns allowed’ are a target range to anyone with hostile intent.
