Let's face it. The era of thriving malls in America is probably in the rear view mirror now, but it didn't used to be that way. There are two malls that are considered among the worst in America that used to thrive but 'fell into ruin' and they used to call Illinois home.
Phones used to be attached to walls with cords. Movies used to need to be rewound and returned to a rental store. The common hangout place used to be malls, but that era has now passed, too. There's a video showing one final walk through a Missouri mall that was demolished 14 years ago.
Everyone is being forced to shop online more and more, but with scammers, bad return policies, and just not trusting the online retail stores, why not get out to shop at the Best Mall in the Land of Lincoln?
