Empty shopping mall with dead trees

It was interesting to notice that the trees in the parking lot were no longer receiving any water. Yet another sign that people are giving up on large shopping malls.
I've never been a mall shopper but I find it sad to see these large building abandoned. I thought they were going to repurpose them as shelters?

In addition to historians, economists, public health experts, and so on, sociologists and their students are going to have plenty of research fodder for years. :-\

Such a sorry state of affairs!

Signs of the times. Maybe it will make us change the way we think.

@haskar I hope so. Rampant Capitalism has run its course and needs to be reigned in to a more sustainable degree.

The economic snake has been eating its proverbial tail for a long time, time to transform, shift to the next phase for sure! @blueberry1222

On line shopping seems to be the norm now, especially since Covid!

Marquette Mall in Indiana is dead, too. They built these indoor malls all over the place in the 70s. The one in Lombard, Illinois, Yorktown, is thriving. Our out door Mall, Light House mall is doing well. I feel sorry the poor dead malls. They look haunted.

The picture sure tells the story - there was a news story yesterday on the percent of indoor malls that had closed in the last few years - Times changing again.
