The Dayton Mall is still going strong at last count.

The Salem Mall went down the tubes years ago.

Now a parking lot.

One of the busiest "malls" is the open air outlet center on the way to Xenia.

Always lots of people shopping.

Besides the obvious unstated reason, malls if they are located in the right part of town do alright.

But I have no explanation of why Tri-county (Cincinnati) Mall does well, but the much nicer Forest Fair Mall never quite cut the mustard.

It had much higher end stores, and was only a couple of miles from Tri-county.

Forest Fair is a destination location and very close to Forest Park which is home to a, uh, community. Yeah, thats it, its close to a community.

Tri County is located in more of a business, middle class area and its far too busy around there for it to fail.

Years ago, shortly after I moved to Cincy, my sister and her family came to visit. At the time I just had to take her to Forest Fair Mall, it really was an amazing mall. Years later, my wife and I were going there and there were plenty of mall hoodrats there talking foul, throwing insults and catcalls. We went and got what we went for and never returned.
