Retail Postscript Question: Will Oak Park Mall Survive Nordstrom Departure?!?!

Newsies focus on consumer considerations whilst carefully avoiding the topic of recent shootings that pose a far greater threat to the future of this suburban institution:

What's next for Oak Park Mall after Nordstrom leaves?

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - Oak Park Mall plans to create a "new identity" after Nordstrom leaves in 2021 for the Country Club Plaza. The vision for that new identity could take a number of forms, according to Oak Park Mall Marketing Director Elizabeth Mathews.

Oak Park can survive. Turn part of the place into a drip club. Hire a bunch of hot little Joco sluts right out of high school and some big tittied milfs that like to fuck. Sell drugs and lots of liquor. Have a $10 cover to keep hood rats out. Should be pretty profitable

This is just a game of "Chicken" between Nordstroms and Mall Management. Nordstroms may leave the Mall if Oak Park doesn't buckle on the lease cost increase, but if they do they'll be moving south to 135th, not east to the failing cesspool that the Plaza is rapidly becoming.

@9:47 did not create a typo.
The term "Drip Club" describes the sex life of the patrons of such places.

Oak Park will be fine as long as they get a handle on crime. Nordstrom’s move is hardly the kiss of death. The majority of Oak Park shoppers are more the Macy’s/Dillard’s set. They may browse and make occasional purchases at Nordstrom but more of their money is spent at mainstream stores.

I think a better question is “Will Nordstrom save the Plaza?” While I hope the answer is yes, seeing upper end department stores like Hall’s and Saks close in years past, not to mention high end boutiques like Burberry and St John, I’m just not sure what’s going to ensure Nordstrom’s success.

I doubt nordstroms will actually go through with moving to the plaza.

On the other hand, Oak Park Mall is basically like somalia these days and I'm not exaggerating. I go there once a week or so and boy has it become culturally enriched since the 80s and 90s

Oak Park Mall and the Plaza will be around long after most of the doomsday geezers on this blog have long since donned their pine overcoats...
