There are too many retail stores, Malls and restaurants in the US. A significant cleansing process is underway. If one looks at the malls in Asia, one can understand why the Malls in the US are dying. The Malls in Asia are like five-star hotels; the service and selection are superb. These Malls are mini-cities and house almost everything one needs in one location—fine dining, casual dining, top brands, regular brands, supervised entertainment for children, etc. In comparison, most American malls look either like garages or warehouses. Not to mention that service, in general, is terrible, the stores are in disarray, and the lines are usually long. When you purchase online, it takes a few seconds, you can compare prices fast, and if you don’t like the item, it’s easy to return.
