Empty car parks in shopping centres

August 29th, 2012 at 01:58 am

Over last few weeks I have notice many of the shopping centres car parks have plenty on spaces in them and lot of empty shops that I have been too!

As they have started to charge for car parking in some shopping centres you would think others would be full or fuller that do not charge but here this is not the case. Yesterday at lunch time I stopped at one to go to just store, normally in the past it was very hard to find a car park but I found around 40 car parks in the one area. Same when I went to the next shopping centre empty car parks.

Are consumers cutting back on their spending here? One person I spoke to thinks so, as our state government is cutting back on staff by 15000 to 20000 for next 18 months or so! It could be 'I may not have a job next month; I better stop spending full stop' feeling.

    Live in suburban Chicago. I am NOT seeing that at all and NOT only at the malls w/Target, Kohl's or Walmart but busy, busy, busy even where there are high end stores like Bloomis, Saks, Nordstrum and Macy.

    However, I think the difference may be due to us having the recession ongoing for 4+ years and your recession in AZ is much younger.

    We never had a recession here for the last 21 years but it looks like one is coming soon!

    I live in Australia.
