Interesting chart. Looks like about 42% of Radio Shacks are going away this year. I'm surprised they lasted as long as they did.

Radio Shaft has been circling the drain for years. Sears. Penneys. Macys. :shrug:

I think a lot depends on location. Some places turn into ghost towns or circle their own drain.
Others reinvent the wheel and grow anew after a period of economic stagnation.

Fasten your seat harness, reach back and light the fuse on that rocket!
Err, there's a lot going on here. :peace:

And here is an example that fits right in with that. Building a "mixed-use lifestyle center" (LOL) to replace an old Macys and a big parking lot. :clapping:
Well, don't think I'll be living or shopping there, but new is good, right? :peace:

We have a mall close to us that is down to four stores and one of them (last time I was there) was Payless.

Clothing retailers have been in a downward spiral for a few years with the exception of the high-end ones. It looks like a lot of malls will lose a lot of tenants very soon.

Is that one of those California gender-identity places??

What??? :cautious:

You can be whatever gender you want here. I forget how many there are now. There is not a problem, call it tolerance.
If you are easily confused, I suggest you avoid West Hollywood. Otoh, for a good time... :leeann2:

Personally, I stick with the old school M A N. :peace:
