Bankruptcy Threatens Oak Park Mall!!!



We'll forgo all caps to save space and because this wasn't really a surprise.

Retail was already dead but the pandemic buried it. Sadly, the golden ghetto good life becomes more elusive and this longstanding monument to middle-class prosperity suffers hard times amid the continued coronvirus depression.

Checkit:

Oak Park Mall: Oak Park Mall owner expects to file for bankruptcy

Deets:

"The company says they are a victim of dwindling foot traffic, shuttered retail space and rents too low to cover more than $3 billion in debt."

^^^^^^^ @8:15

It was the democrats that took the booming Trump economy down with their involvement in the CCP COVID hit idiot. Everyone saw the economy under Trump boom. But this is how stupid you people are. You blame Trump for a virus and when everything is closed you blame him for that and when he opens everything you blame him for that too. You people are about as evil as Satan himself.

Trump's fault, next question.

The knife in the back of Oak Park wasn't Trump's doing, it was that witch in Topeka's doing.

But the black crime wave started it all.

It's just a reprise of the "Bush's fault" excuse for Demonrat incompetence and inaction.

When Oak Park Mall allowed kiosks in the hallways with sales staff pestering you as you walked by - I quit going there.

I quit going there when it started to look like Mogadishu and there were shootings and rapes in the parking lot thanks to glorious diversity.

^^Fascinating. And yet you never went as you are broke and a shut in. Weird.

Untrue. But I know you're jealous of people who don't live in a zoo, Chimpy! Lol

I ran several of Boomer Hater/Weird/CHUD boy's comments through an online age detection app for written materials and it showed in the results that he is only 10 years old. You can tell his age by his lack of writing skills and his frequent temper tantrums. I'm guessing he dropped out of elementary school, and his mother doesn't know what to do with him. For his welfare, we’ve started a GoFundMe page titled “Save the 10-Year-Old Dumbass."

Too many upstanding residents in Section 8 and other parts of the metro, where their malls have closed, destroyed Oak Park a long time ago. They go there to cool off in the free air conditioning.

^^wow. That's fascinating. Completely false, but fascinating nonetheless.

^^But what he said was absolutely true. Weird.

Peep the racists in here. Not a surprise, really.

Yep, when BLM started their shit a few years ( not this latest ). The loitering began, the violence, the mob fights and the shootings. People said fuck that and decide au revoir and let the gangsta s have it. If you went there in the last year or so you would only see gangsta and mexicans families. Void of others. You can tell a success or failure by who you see visit a place. About 3 years ago, I gave it to about May of 2021.. Bannister, Indian Springs and Metcalf all suffered the same Gangsta /loitering shit. The writing is on the wall and has been for years. Blame onlie sales or covid.. no want wants to feel unsafe while shopping - provided by loitering criminals.

11:42 Sounds like someone hit a nerve with you and got your goat. A bit defensive, aren't we? Sounds like you got the fu*k knocked out on that one by your reaction.

Weird but maybe Amazon had something to do with people not needing malls any more.

What's not a surprise is your fallback on racism, which is now just a political term.

That one girl was abducted and killed from Oak Park. Was her name Kelsey Smith? After that - I stayed away. Often random gunshots and when police arrived no arrests. So Town Center is my place to shop.

Trump’s fault, next question my ass. People like you, with very low IQ have a special place in life but it’s certainly not expressing a third graders opinion on an adult blog. Idiot!!!

Black crime ruined Oak Park Mall. When you allow urban creep, you see the same thing happening to Oak Park as happened to Bannister as is happening to the Plaza. Local police have to
make an example out of the black hoodlums who don’t know how to behave in public and around others. They screw with a white kid, we screw with 10 of them. I’m in favor of brutalizing these fucks.

Well, Trump did promise to save it.

American carnage ending January 20, 2017.

Now he promises suburban housewives that he will end low income housing to minorities in those great suburbs to save them.

Of course, he will do that AFTER the election.

Sure...right. Just like that big beautiful Mexican paid wall we're still waiting for. I'm beginning to think this guy isn't exactly a straight shooter.

Blacks ruin all neighborhoods. Blacks move in and real estate and living conditions tank, then they blame everyone else. BLM needs to open a physical office here so we know where to find them.

I’m getting my popcorn ready for the Nordstrom’s move to the Plaza, which now must look like the biggest mistake ever. Hope they like recovering from a thorough looting in the future. I give it a week after the grand opening before someone finds an excuse to loose the mob on it for “reparations”. Oak Park Mall meanwhile is going into a death spiral. Sad to see.

Black people are, primarily the most bigoted race in the world. Why would they want to move to the suburbs? They want to spread their award winning culture and contributions to society elsewhere?

It will be sad to see it go, but it really only attracts minorities now anyway. It will actual make joco better when it closes. Sorry tony, even when bad things happen here good things happen.

@7:46 - guess you've been out of town or something, it was announced over a week ago that the Nordstrom's move to the Plaza had been put on "permanent hold" due to the "booming" Economy!

Unknown said...

Ya... If you actually believe any of that then you're as ignorant as Trump. He's an incompetent delusional moron who's done nothing but f*** things up for four years.

Unknown said...

Yip. They can’t help themselves
