Is there anything more sad than an empty mall?
I submit that there is not.
Valley View mall used to be a thriving hub of shopping in Dallas. The food court was alive and kickin’ with every conceivable concept you could imagine.
Now it’s a virtual-but-air-conditioned ghost town. Huge anchor stores are now vacant or replaced with an indoor boxing facility. While I am encouraged by the ingenuity of them adding things like workout facilities it can’t sustain that huge place for too long.
This whole thing just baffles me. The malls all over the DFW are dying and being replaced with those “town square” shopping areas.
I hate those.
