I can't say that I would trust shrimp from a KMart cafeteria.

I don't eat seafood as you know but their tacos weren't bad.

Some department stores used to have decent restaurants for the times, even JC Pennys. It made going to the mall with Mom a special treat. The department stores at the malls phased their restaurants out years ago and for a long, long time the only food options were food courts. Yuck. Now the malls around here are surrounded by modern chain restaurants which I think has brought at least some foot traffic back to the malls.

 Not so much a mall. More of a discount outlet center.

It's three our four separate buildings, no food courts, no high end stores, no recreational facilities. And the last time I was there half the businesses were shuttered.

 I think you're misremembering Gurnee Mills! I actually worked there for a short time many years ago. It's one building and it definitely has a food court. It's the third largest mall in Illinois.

 Let us not argue.

Gurning is supposed to be a cheerful affair

The key phrase here is "many years ago", and it's definitely more than one building.

 We're not arguing for real. This is "message board" arguing. It's all in fun.  biggrin

 Yep, most are still here, but most of the department stores are gone or will be leaving.  Norstrom's and Macys were holding on pretty good, but I heard just the other day Macys will be closing more stores.  JC Penny is still around too, but for how much longer I don't know.  The mall are still here, but I don't think there is a single department store left in downtown Seattle.

I very rarely go into the malls anymore, when I do it is to go to the Apple Store or to a Disney store to get a gift for my little nieces.  The malls are not what they used be, they have types of businesses you never used to see at a mall, like gyms, movie theaters, arcades, junky import shops, outlet stores.  I don't know, maybe if I went to high falutin Bellevue Square it might still resemble itself from 20 years ago.  Nah.

 Not around here.  Our big malls were always one big building.  Well, sort of.  The department stores  were scattered and had huge square footprints.  The department stores were connected by indoor halls filled with the smaller shops.

If there is no indoor hallways, we just call that a shopping center.
