"Soon malls are going to be glorified flea markets!"

the mall in my town already is...in fact the old Mervyn's store became a huge Dollar Store. Thrift stores are everywhere. Dollar Stores are everywhere. The mall is mostly empty and the majors that are there, such as Macy's and Sears, are rated D. It's about demographics, and the fact that wages don't support living. For retail to get this bad is multi faceted: wages, jobs, education, wholesale pricing, and now the internet. The first three have been in severe decline since the '70's : Wages have not kept up with cost of living (inflation). Jobs have been sent overseas which affects spendable income. Education (including in-store training) has been on a decline since about forever which results in the abysmal state of retail service in brick and mortar stores which drives customers to purchase on line. And wholesale pricing is ridiculously high which drives out mom&pops. Solution? It's as multifaceted as the problem but I think the first step is to outlaw "lobbying" which is nothing more than bribing.
