O futuro já cá está, está é mal distribuído

"Malls are morphing into one-stop shops": (À atenção da Sonae-Sierra)
"With retail spending gradually shifting to the Internet, the enclosed shopping centers best known for department stores, teen apparel chains and shoe shops are increasingly adding the kinds of services people usually find closer to home.
So instead of all-day spending sprees, consumers are showing up to drop off prescriptions, get their teeth whitened, have keys made or work out at the gym.
"Nontraditional tenants in a retail property is really the wave of the future," said Michael Niemira, chief economist at the International Council of Shopping Centers. "We've hit the saturation point of retail."

Non-retail and non-restaurant businesses make up about 17% of leasable regional mall space, but that number is expected to grow quickly and could reach 25% within a decade, he said."
