My take on this is that with Amazon et al and the way these malls treated kids in the 90's, the Shopping Mall is either going to have to attract Boomers and the Millennial Generation or die. I am trying to think of the last time my old ass went to a mall, I think It was to go to a Sears 11 years ago and buy some Craftsman stuff. Now, with Craftsman being the same cheap imported schlock as everything else, I'll either go to Home Depot or Lowes and buy their stuff for less and get the same quality.
Granted my friend circle is the outlier, but none of us go to malls, hell most of us don't go to stores other than food and booze/beer.
This place sounds like a try-hard attempt to make an attraction and throw back to an 80's movie. Even Trump and his people turned it down!
