Hello Roy - as a former retailer and an ex-Washingtonian, I still have contacts  an as well as ab awareness of what is happening in that world.  It should be interesting  to see how/if Lakeforest evolves in its "new life".

Good afternoon Roy- that seem to be the state of affairs as malls suffer and are being repurposed.

Its' really quite sad to hear of the closing of some of the old shopping mainstays.  Just this past week I learned one of my favorite stores, Charming Charlies is closing.  We have lost Sears, and several others as well.

Hi Roy... I think J C Penney is closing quite a few stores these days. Sears, too.
