Now there are 2 Gamestop stores at the local mall.

There was a Babbages store at the mall and an EBgames at the same mall. Now they are owned by the same corporation.
I wonder if they will close down one, or keep them both then I will laugh and laugh and buy some games.

At my local mall (Granted it is the Mall of America) There are between 2-4 Radio shack stores at any time. At One point their were four video games shops, two were GameStops, and two were EBX. There are three store levels to the Mall, so odds are you'd pass at least one. Of note, each loop around the mall is a mile long, so just to look at the front of each store would be a three mile walk...

Wow, that's a very big mall legodragon. I've never seen one with more than one floor, although there is one mall about an hour away that just seems to take forever to walk around. It's a big circle with a theater in the middle and it seems to take hours to circle around it once...
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

That Mall is nothing. Try: West Edmonton Mall

(It is the world's largest)

Yeah, its nuts... but you can find just about anything, and there is a theme park in the middle of it.

The Mall Of America is planning an expansion that might make it the largest, but the economy in the US will need to get better first.

Okay, I have this all beat! Here we go:

1) The mall near me (Roosevelt Field Mall) has not one, not two, but THREE EB/Gamestops in it. And it's not big of a mall.

2) I have been to West Edmonton Mall and when I was there I:
  • Saw a dolphin show.
  • Went to the waterslide park.
  • Went to the amusement park.
  • Played golf.
  • Ate alligator in a restaurant on "Bourbon Street".

I still haven't been to the Mall of America, but I want to go.

you can order from McDonalds at my Wal Mart and then go pick it up across the parking lot. :P

We had one Game Stop in our very little mall and one EB Games next to Target in a strip mall.

We have a mall down here Highpoint shopping centre has an EB and a games rush. Of course opisite the Games rush is a JB HiFi which was a CD, DVD and assorted audio visual equipment store has now branched out into selling games as well. Theres a Toys R us right above that.

I was there the other day when I went to see Serenity while waiting for the movie to start I basically went from one end tot he other going into every store that had any gaming of any kind managed to squeeze 3 hours out of it.
