Just some notes on a recent visit
On Monday, I took a trip to the Prudential Mall in Boston. This was my first trip to the mall since the pandemic had begun.
Five Things I Learned
I visited on Columbus Day, usually a busy time for the mall. I get that the pandemic has caused people to avoid the mall, but it seemed much quieter than expected.
The Starbucks at Copley was closed. This is surprising since the pre-pandemic it was always busy. I think that it must be closed because of the holiday.
Some stores were enforcing the number of customers in the stores.
The parking lot was very empty. Thankfully it didn't cost an arm and a leg to park there for 3 hours. It cost $15 to park. Personally, they should lower the parking rate to encourage people to visit the mall.
A couple of stores were closed since I was their - David's Tea and the Microsoft store.
