Hopefully the nearby Avenues in the Avenues area wonít become yet another dead mall (see the Regency area for a good example of one, the Regency Square Mall, which killed off traffic from earlier-built malls such as Roosevelt, Normandy, Philips, and Gateway (this one in particular, as it WAS our cityís largest and most notable mall before the Regency Square Mallís opening and subsequent expansion)), despite the fact that it is slated to lose its Sears. At least it doesnít have the perception of being in a declining area like the Regency Square Mall was known to be, starting in about 1999-2000, and peaking in 2004 (though the mall itself would continue to decline through the Great Recession to today, unlike the other restaurant/retail/shopping developments surrounding the mall itself, which have actually come back to life following the Great Recession).
