Not to my knowledge. The only stores in the majority of the malls here are clothing shops and shoe shops. Also usually the only food in the food court is the same generic asian food, and pizza place, and a chick-fil-a.That Hyena Bloke said:That's not a thing in the US? In Australia the vast majority of shopping malls have at least one auto shop, sometimes more if they specialise in something.Ragnar47183 said:We need to see more of a reason to go to malls. Put an auto shop in one. If you are getting work done on your car chances are youd spend the day at the mall while your car gets its repairs. Put a bowling alley in there. Get fucking creative. Make people actually want to come.
We have our share of abandoned malls too, but they're often because someone thought it would be a good idea to build a second one in a small town or charge too much in rent.
In fact there is a mall near me that just went bankrupt and is on the verge of closing. There are maybe 5 shops in the whole place.
