What Could Come to Meridian Mall?
Of course, attractions like their bigger stores as well as High Caliber Karting and Entertainment have certainly kept people coming back to the Meridian Mall, we think the best way to figure out what people will want and what will entice them to shop there would be to just ask them!
The Lansing area is a pretty fashionable part of Michigan, it's also the capital and practically in the middle of the state which means we should have one of the best malls, right?

Malls Just Need to Adapt
Maybe it's because I will always long for the times my mom, sisters and I would take an entire day and shopped until we dropped at a mall full of stores we didn't have in Jackson. Whether that was the Briarwood Mall in Ann Arbor or the Meridian Mall, it was always so fun.
No, it wasn't just about the material things we bought but getting to experience something different every time.
Malls have been a central part of our culture for so long, just watch any movie made in the 90's.
Yes, the way people shop is changing, but online shopping is not instant, it's not walking through in your cute outfit, exploring the mall as the smell of soft pretzels wafts through the air, you find some treasures, maybe stop for dinner and you had yourself a great day.
Malls just need to adapt, listen to what people want and make it more of an "experience" again.
