At least Eatly was packed with people eating and shopping. I guess I am just not that used to seeing soooo many spots at NorthPark without active retailers. I am sad to see H&M close I was an H&M customer but only the NorthPark store since they carried more designer stuff at the NorthPark store than the suburban stores. I won't go to the Galleria so H&M cause I just don't like that mall and H&M isnt enough draw to drag me to the Galleria. Lord knows the 5 mins I spent in Firewheel and TownEast in the last 5 yrs was also a shock to my system. Malls just arent what they used to be and I am glad many are being torn down, to be honest.
I'm pretty sure most of those "empty" spots are part of a larger plan and are accounted for in their leasing strategy.
