Our most popular mall lasted about 20 years. It was downtown and meant to revitalize the area. It did well for a while and brought in stores that one doesn't see outside of New York, Chicago, etc. Eventually, it earned a reputation for being too dangerous to be around...especially at night. Young thugs moved in as did panhandlers. I suppose that was to be expected but the security guards there had no real way to control them. There were a few gang incidents and one shooting death. That was the beginning of the end. Most of the media coverage downplayed the real reason the place was failing. It was bulldozed around 2009. We're had other malls fail as well. Some of it has been due to larger more modern malls being built too closely to old ones but those old ones were also experiencing some of the same crime problems as the downtown mall. You didn't go to these places after dark. A lot of the better stores are building in clusters but with entrances that open to the outdoors. I could expect that the enclosed mall could become a thing of the past. It's just too easy for folks who aren't interested in shopping...or doing so with their own money...to loiter and get into trouble. Here's a link to dozens of mall closure stories.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
