in the next 10-15 years. My wife and I went Christmas shopping at the Asheville Mall today and this past Wednesday. We did a large portion of our Christmas shopping on-line but certainly not all of items were bought on-line. Anyway, in years not too long ago anytime you when Christmas shopping at the Asheville Malls between Black Friday and Christmas the mall was always packed, be it a weekday and or weekend. In fact, it use to be a nightmare just to drive into the Asheville Mall and find a parking place. But this week there were no long traffic lines, plenty of parking spaces, etc. Once we got into the mall the crowds were small considering it was Christmas. We didn't have to wait in lines very long to pay for our purchases nor did we have trouble getting a clerk to help us. But gosh it use not to be that way at all. The Asheville mall was is in a hard to drive around in location but again that was no problem this year. Now one thing is missing from the Asheville Mall is Sears which was a large anchor store but I don't think it would have made that much of a difference. I think JC Penny's is still there although we didn't go into that store. But, it's just shows the passage of time. Use to everyone shopped downtown, then everything moved into the malls. Now everyone is going on-line, which I enjoy and the malls will ultimately become condominiums?
