The rise of online shopping has made it harder for traditional retailers to attract customers.
In 2017 alone we saw several "brick and mortar stores" like Toys R Us, Radio Shack, and Payless all file for bankruptcy protection
So how does our very own sunset mall continue to thrive?
In a statement, today Sunset mall says they quote “understand the changing shopper demographic, but work to enhance the offerings at sunset mall to serve the needs of the local community"
The general manager adds that the mall has made quote " a million dollars in property improvements with new sky lights, paint and carpet... They also have a variety of new amenities like cell phone charging stations".While other malls across America have seen a decline in shoppers----the mall here in the Concho Valley continues to grow.
