The Pantheon of American Consumerism, Reborn! Mall of America to Double in Size

The Mall of America, once the largest mall in the USA, and already chock full of retail with its 520 stores, will be doubling in size, in an effort to reclaim the title.

More shopping, of course, but also hotels, a theater, and a skating rink. The amusement park in the center will remain.

I first walked through the mall back in 1996. There were three different Gaps. Apparently that’s insufficient. Clearly, we need six in the same mall. MARK ASHLEY
