a sign of the (anchor store) times.
we ran into some hockey parents outside ( hockey tournament weekend! ) the macy's. they were there to see "the boat show" in the mall ( boats parked where there there used to be kiosks ), not to shop. one of them looked at macy's and said, "ugh, you couldn't pay me to go in there."
the only reason we were in the mall was to return an eddie bauer christmas gift that was bought online.
