I think the comment was referring to the former Mardel location, possibly being a grocer...

Was in last Sat and got a front end alignment (the tech was pretty good at it, too!) and asked the Auto Mgr if he had heard any rumors yet.  He said no, but it's a day to day thing.

They lost their way long, long ago, and the idea that you can "cut costs" your way to success has been proven false over and over.  That means you are also cutting the services and 'style' and other things that got you to where you used to be, too.  Oh, well....evolution in action!   At least the C-suite people will get their golden parachutes...to he$$ with the other 90,000 people working there...!

I don’t share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

Sears has been failing for a long time in increments both large and small, most of its own making.  Each bad decision seemed to lead to more bad decisions, etc.  Ironic in that it was the “Amazon” of its day by creating the place from which you could order just about anything and have it shipped directly to you.

Go to that page- go half way down - school house 5008.  Looks VERY much like the one I went to 2nd grade in.

You'll see these malls run in stages or cycles; hopefully you will see a return.   

OKC closed Crossroad Mall; attempted to re-purpose it as Plaza Mayor Mall to cater to a growing Hispanic-latino population. 

Amazon has made a big impact on the malls.   What will eventually determine the fate of the Amazon's hype will have more to do with their ability to maintain quality products distributed; how fast they can ship those items.
