The malls around where I live are usually a hang-out place (usually teenagers). Plus, they are so cookie-cutter.

Malls lack a sense of humanity. They are part of the American Capitalist Machine to increase profits at the expense of fellow man.
Malls lack heart and soul. They are the breeding grounds of consumerism, starting at a very young age with visits to Santa Claus in the mall.
Malls are a contibuting factor to the deconstruction of man. They are in the same category as the Military Industrial Complex.

I don't like malls at Christmas time. I can't stand crowds. But going downtown with crowds can be just as bad. I like malls at any other time of year.

I hate the fact that they are basically chain-store neighborhoods. It would be cool to see more indie stores.

The only thing I hate about malls is that, sometimes, what I'm specifically searching for still cannot be found in that huge collection of stores. Also, the mall that I prefer for Christmas shopping tends to "echo" from all the noise from the crowd which can drive me to the brink of insanity.

Other than that, I like malls, particularly enclosed ones since I'd rather not dodge in and out of stores in the rain.

I'm not much interested in outlet malls anymore since the Mikasa stores closed.
