Millennials Tried to Kill the American Mall, But Gen Z Might Save It

Gen Z keeps confounding Corporate America. They’ve shunned beer, they want companies to take political stands and they trust Kardashians to make their makeup choices. But perhaps the biggest surprise about this new cohort of teenagers is the most unexpected of all: They love the shopping mall. Around 95 percent of them visited a physical shopping center in a three-month period in 2018, as opposed to just 75 percent of millennials and 58 percent of Gen X, according to an International Council of Shopping Centers study. And they genuinely like it; three-quarters of them said going to a brick-and-mortar store was a better experience than online, ICSC found.

Nimble retailers are making their stores more Instagram-worthy in a bid to appeal to this connected crowd. About a third of Gen Z consumers say shopping should also be entertaining, according to data from Cassandra, a cultural insights and strategy agency. With these Gen Z shoppers in mind, old-guard department store Macy’s Inc. earlier this month rolled out in 36 of its locations “Story,” a colorful themed shop-in-shop. In its behemoth Herald Square store, the 7,500-square-foot space is brightly painted with primary colors, a pillar completely made of Crayola crayons, a pingpong table and a rainbow tunnel.

Creating Your Career 2.0 #podcast

“Millions of Americans are still anxious about their professional future. Job security has become a dark punchline or an oxymoron, like “jumbo shrimp.” The only real constant in business today is the constant threat of people being downsized, right-sized or capsized, as corporations try to wring every bit of profit from their bottom lines. So, what’s the move here? Stay in a job with no guarantees and a definite end-point, usually not of your choosing? Maybe it’s time to take control of your professional life by creating Your Career 2.0, taking a deep dive into owning your own business.”
