Shopping Mall Attempts Suicide

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Eric J - Dream Home Financing

The year is 2018 and shoppers have become more than comfortable doing their shopping online instead of running out to the mall. After all, the prices may be cheaper online, you can possibly get free shipping, have a larger selection AND not have to deal with crowds or unfriendly store employees.

Freehold Mall

Knowing all of this, the Freehold Raceway Mall in Freehold NJ decided that it would make sense to pilot a program where  customers would PAY $5 for premium parking spots creating yet another advantage for people to shop online instead.

 

Offiials from this Monmouth County NJ mall say that only the most premium (1% of all spaces) will have the $5 fee attached to the spaces. It would be an area that is portioned off from the rest of the parking lot with an attendant to monitor and collect the fees. In a survey being conducted by a local newspaper, more than 91% of the people voting said they would not pay the fee. 

 

What do you think abou this decision by the Freehold Raceway Mall? Comment below. My thoughts are that people need to get more exercise. If you have to walk 300 more feet to get from your car to the building it will probably be a good thing.

 

Let me know what you think in the comment area below.

I am noticing what appears to be a push by retailers to get us to do more on-line shopping.  For the most part I am not against that.  However, I hate shopping for clothes or shoes on-line, because what they send rarely fits.

I'm not paying for parking. Just sayin'. They should pay me to get me to spend my money in their mall.
