For those who could shop ‘till they drop, the “average” mall is simply too small for an afternoon’s worth of walking around. Serious shoppers want more bang for their buck, so they seek out the shopping meccas that are monumental. Their “go big” mentality is all about maximizing their mall time.

Most Americans have been to a mall at least at one point in their lives, be it the one nearest them or one they’ve traveled to for something specific. Maybe they were visiting friends or family in another state and everyone went shopping for the day. With so much to peruse, it’s the perfect way to pass the time. Plus, the food court is always enjoyable after spending so much energy on raiding the racks and scouring shelves.
