Sunday Discussion: What America’s Shopping Mall Decline Means For Social Space

For decades and decades, the place to go to do a lot of shopping, and to have a social gathering, was the local shopping mall.  Think about it, why did teenagers always want to go to the mall?  It’s not to mostly shop, it’s mostly to have a social gathering time with their friends.  But, as the world of retail changes to the internet and brick and mortar stores continue to close down, where do people of all ages go to have fun with their friends?  Vox made a video to talk about this.

As more malls and retail places continue to close down, and with the internet and smartphones continuing to grow, what will happen to the all important thing of human-to-human interaction?  It’s a very interesting video for sure!
