Where are the mall crowds?

Posted on: December 7, 2008

Hijacked by my wife into three tortuous hours of following along behind her in a shopping mall- I actually fell asleep on a mall bench at one point – I had to notice how few people there were. The sales clerks outnumbered the customers by a good 5-1 margin. The halls were empty. The stores were empty. This is in the thriving oil capital of Alberta and no one is shopping on a weekend in December with Christmas 19 days away. That is bizarre.
Not a good sign.
