crawling the mall on the saturday before christmas

I usually only go out to a mall about twice a year and tonight was the night. It was busy, but seemed way less so than last year. This mall is over 30 years old, and it's said that it may go bankrupt this year.

#1: Three floors of shoppers and actually quite pretty inside.

#2: This is the long line waiting to see Santa.

#3: The "Santa pit." Hopefully he isn't doing too much groping around "down there." 😀 I think "Santa sessions" are still free, but you are encouraged to buy portraits to remember the visit.

#4: The Post Office facing a lot of last-minute shipping. Even a short line means a long wait. These people will be here for ages. This one has its own Zip Code, 27427.

#5: These gumball things are in all the shopping malls. It is rumored that they are all Mormon owned, whatever that means to the world. A conspiracy? :p

#6: Mr. Dunderbak's Old World Market and Cafe. German-like food, snacks, and beer mostly from Europe, but from all around the world really. It always smells good walking by. I went in looking for Duvel beer, but they only had one bottle left.

  1. Merry Christmas to you,Dave! 😀

  2. source I love visiting Post offices, its all ways so much fun. Too bad POs here are not authorized to open in mall and such. (POs On government allocated properties only)

  3. Post Offices aren't all that common here in malls. Usually they are where there's absolutely no place to park. The one ot the mall is very nice, but always busy. You can go to copy/office places, like Kinko's, and they resell you the services of the Post Office, or Fed-Ex, at higher prices.The mall Post Office was one of the first I ever saw years ago that had a gift shop. Collectible stamps, envelopes, kiddie mailboxes, and things that everyone would want, like a coffee mug with the *USPS seal* on it, lol. It was strange.Hey, Santa up there looks like he's ready to conduct Mass!PoolBoy42, Shaunak, KYren, I enjoy your company very much. Let's have a New Year's party. :hat:

  4. Love and hugs to you too! 😀 :up: :love:

  6. 😦 Dave,it's not possible to have a party through a mobile or a computer screen.Have you invented a teleporting machine? 😀

  7. Have you invented a teleporting machine?

    We'll figure out something. 🙂

  8. Wow, HUGE MALL! Is that in your state?Malls here are all 1 floor and spread out.

  9. Yes, right here in town. It started out as 2 floors, then a 3rd was added. It's towards the large side, especially for a place of this size, though I have seen much bigger ones.I'm wondering if the large malls are fading away. It seems like they are all in financial trouble.

  10. They could be. Erosion, age, and weather all means collapse in the future. It's everything but predictable. The largest mall I've been in was only 2 floors.
