Poor mall

I feel bad for Lougheed Mall. A lot of the stores there are having 50% off sales to try to stay in business and have been for months now. That whole one side of the mall on the upper level is empty too, just a few stores still open. Not sure what's causing it all or how to fix it but I feel bad for it.

E-commerce changed the face of retail.

I used to go there as a bored teenager. I then realized taking the long 1 hour bus ride to downtown was way more interesting. Lougheed Mall was stale, predictable and old all at the same time. Nothing has changed.

I've said it a million times....Take those fuckin' gyms out of a MALL. You don't go to a mall to work out. You go to a mall to fuckin' shop. The one there takes up so much room.

Just global capitalism at work, when large swaths of people don't have extra money to throw around on consumption businesses generally will feel the pinch.

UBI or a living wage(if there are jobs) are the only ways to increase the velocity of money.

Might have something to do with the redevelopment of the mall site that is advertised... All over the mall site.

Most suburban Vancouver malls have been dead since the mid 90s.

If you’d taken a look around, you’d see that there is massive redevelopment going on there. That is what is causing it

weird how Lougheed has been dying in the last decade even with all the new condos built there, 20 years ago it was doing well with no condos.
