As shopping centers learn that Gen Z isn’t going to the mall to shop, they’re making changes to lure people back.
Younger shoppers are relying on websites like Amazon. Now malls are making changes to get them back. For example, in Tampa, Westshore Plaza is adding a hotel and outdoor shopping area. They also plan to add apartments and office space.
International Plaza is planning a bowling alley and movie theater.
University Mall, where construction began months ago, is adding an “urban neighborhood”.
