SHOPPING, MALLS, AND DOWNTOWN

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge 
All about buildings: Commercial buildings or store fronts

I wonder if the malls will ever open again? I wonder how many shops will still be “alive” when our siege finally ends? IF our siege ever ends. Sometimes I look ahead and I don’t see an end, just endlessly more of the same. I was never a big “mall person.” Other than for occasional holiday shopping, I tended to avoid malls and more recently than when I was younger because it was so much walking — and I had a lot of trouble covering the distance. I was grateful for the benches and chairs along the walking routes.

    • Thank you so much. I needed lift right now. This has been a dismal year. I’m just hoping that we pull out of this and next year is at least a LITTLE bit better!! I’m glad you made it to Idaho and safely returned. I was worried about you.

  4. I don’t mind either, there is not as much that I want at the shops any more. I feel a post coming on about that.

  5. Since being without a car I no longer go to my large store with the mall in another village, but now stick to the stores in town to be reached by my scooter and I am doing quite well. I have realised I do not need the mall, and never actually visited the stores there. It just added to the experience of going places and doing things. My new carless life is out in the open air (as long as it Everything is on a smaller scale, but I do not mind.

    • There were three reasons I went to a mall: it was Christmas and I had a handicapped pass, or our watches needed batteries and there’s a battery kiosk in Auburn, and I had a passionate yearning for hot pretzels from Annie’s. The next mall I go do better have a battery kiosk!
