The world’s most exclusive malls are experiencing something of a drought in some parts of the world. In many towns and cities, they are becoming something of a white elephant. Not only are these malls no longer attractive and convenient to mall worshippers, they have also become too expensive for retail tenants. For both mall property owners and their creative and ambitious tenants, some innovation is required to bring back the crowds.
Mall owners need to think long and hard on how to utilize their empty stores going forward. What themes will be suitable and what candidates out there are suitably qualified to run these stores? Mainstream small business owners can collaborate very well with mall owners in opting for more cost effective and attractive looking mall kiosks that can be installed along passageways which are wide enough to accommodate these mobile boutique stores that have the capacity to promote a variety of themes.
They can be placed along the corridors of a boutique clothing precinct and used by creative arts and crafts entrepreneurs who specialize in minute merchandise that fits hand in glove with the exclusive clothing on the racks of the boutique stores. They should always be allowed to be paraded within the malls’ one draw card, the food halls. After a sit down meal is completed, mall shoppers can make their way over to these picaresque wagons and select a few delicacies to take home with them.
The mall kiosks are also perfectly equipped for the preparation of culturally themed meals that are affordable to all. Choices now go way beyond just the traditional burgers and fries for which of course accommodation will still be made. After purchasing their meals, shoppers can take their places in the seating arrangements already made by the mall managers.
