NBM #4 The mall has it all!

Or does it?  I think Lynchburg has quite possible the worst mall in Virginia. The worst that I have seen anyway. Even when I came to this area in the mid 80's, it wasn't great, but it had decent stores and was clean and modern looking. Still nothing compared to the malls in Northern Va. Now, the same decor from 25 years ago doesn't fit well in 2010. Many of the popular brand stores are gone and only the same old tired names remain. Most of the newer stores coming in are super cheesy clothing stores or dollar stores. There's one saving grace, and I believe it's a last ditch effort to save the mall. They built a new, large movie theater. The old one was terrible, tiny theaters and uncomfortable seating. Now it's a stadium seating style theater. With not much else to offer though, I wonder how many more years the mall will survive.

Forget the mall... buy independent. Search Etsy or make your own!! Thrift and refashion or just get things tailored to the right size. You'll save money and have a truly unique wardrobe suited to your tastes and not just what the stores think they can sell.

I don't hardly ever go there anymore. I already do some thrift store shopping and I have tailored a lot of my older stuff to fit better. I have a sewing machine and can use it. :)

The only decent mall we have here is MacArthur in Norfolk. The others consistently go downhill. I've never been to Tysons Corner or the malls in NVA. I keep saying I'm going up there but never seem to go. I do like Short Pump Mall in Richmond!
