Although a relatively new mall, it appears to me that the it has already begun a long, slow demise - like Northlake, Gwinnett Place, and many years before South DeKalb and North DeKalb.

How so? Not challenging you, just asking what the signs and symptoms are.

A number of the original big chain stores have left the mall and were replaced by filler stores - anyone to pay the rent. This is just my observation.

Ah, thanks. Maybe some of that is due to the fact that retail everywhere is struggling?

Well luckily we can finally put this debate to rest (filler stores) this month when we see just how many seasonal halloween stores go in.

According to wikipedia,
Quote:
In May 2009, the management instituted an anti-teenager policy, whereby anyone under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult after a 4pm "curfew" on weekends, or be forced to leave by mall security.
Get out of here you kids!

That's pretty pathetic. No wonder there is no apple store.

Not pathetic. More common than you think. And a good thing IMO. Arbor Place has the same policy.

The question should be why can't major retailers survive in malls that require such policies?

What are bored teens supposed to do if they can't hang out at the mall?

Because for the time being, the only people spending money on stuff that's non essential are wealthier people in the more affluent suburbs and teens that don't know they should be saving money.
Now in fairness, if the teens at the mall in question were actually spending money, there wouldn't be such a policy. Obviously they weren't. They were hanging out at the mall causing a disturbance in what is already a declining mall. It just underscores the problem. If you gotta have a policy like this, you might be in decline. Apple doesn't do malls that are in decline.
