While countless brands hope mall-goers would splurge on their shops, truth is, not all foot traffic can be converted to profit. Some would visit just to escape their daily struggles, a customer insight that inspires mall developers to go beyond the usual “mall experience”. Maybe this explains the enormity of these malls we love to go to. Now, whose feet are tired?
