What do people consider a "mall" these days? There seem to be the traditional all indoors enclosed walkways malls, the "strip mall" with just a bunch small stored abutting each other, and these new "town center" complexes which are just a bunch of strip malls and big box stores clustered into one location (but you still have to drive around it).
The closest traditional mall to where I live is an hour and twenty minutes away, the closest strip mall is thirty minutes away and I have no idea where the closest town center is (maybe three hours . . .)
Regardless I only go when I need/want something from a store in the complex or want to do some hands on research of products. If I don't need to do the research I tend to try and buy it online for cheaper.
