the next Deadmall?

CNN asks whether the US is 'overstored'. Read: The dead mall problem. Pittsburgh is certainly well represented at Other than JP who once answered a similar question: who remembers Zayre's in the city and where it was? What could be the next greyfield?

I believe that Zayres was where National City's mortgage department will probably no longer be in a few months.

Century III Mall will be the next dead mall. It's losing ground to The Waterfront and South Hills Village Mall, much the same way Eastland Mall lost ground to Monroeville Mall and Century III.

Speaking of malls, it's nice to see Ross Park Mall becoming the big cheese in the Pittsburgh region. Upscale retail is long overdue in the region, and between the new stores offered nowhere else nearby and the sheer size of the place, I see Ross Park Mall becoming a regional shopping destination.

There was a Zayre's on the edge of the East Hills shopping plaza decades ago. The building later was used as a church; don't know what is in it these days.

Pittsburgh Mills could be on the verge of becoming an apocalypse mall, too. When one of your prime tenants is a hobby store (B&R Hobbies currently occupies 3, count 'em, 3 storefronts), you're in trouble.
