This is a company that never revitalized in the face of competition. Clerks were indifferent, the computerized check out system was antiquated, and the “Arnold Palmer” brand was mediocre. The company did nothing special to make customers feel welcome. It’s becoming a real blight on the urban landscape with all these empty big box spaces. Bezos over at Amazon has been a big winner and I commend him for creating a web portal that is easy and convenient with an excellent “search bar”. Over at Amazon, you can travel the shopping neighborhood with a click of a mouse and let someone else take care of the logistics otherwise associated with parking, ambivalent pedestrians in mall parking lots, and service levels deserving of the pay grade. How many clerks have given you the blank stare once questioned about pitiful inventories in the most popular of sizes? These mall lease rates are going to start looking pretty hefty once ecommerce and competitive on line pricing increases market presence even more. Last question – how many folks have you witnessed at your local mall hands free of merchandise filling the food court rather than the tills of starving merchants?
