Why are some New Jersey malls struggling to stay open?

July 29, 2018

“That’s the other dimension of retooling malldom in New Jersey, shifting activities to experience, health, wellness and a whole range of other functions that weren’t even anticipated 20 years ago,” said James Hughes, dean emeritus of the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy.
