1. Shopping malls
Shopping mall culture has suffered numerous blows over the past few years. Even Grandma has an Amazon Prime account these days. And with the anchor stores for those malls disappearing, days of strolling around the mall for hours on end are going the way of the 1980s’ big hair.
While there are still some Black Friday stampedes at brick-and-mortar stores, shopping online means you won’t get pushed under a coat rack by someone in a quest for this year’s top toy. And malls as a hangout have given way to a more 21st-century gathering spot: the coffeehouse.
