Outdoor shopping centers continue to be the preferred retail experience for consumers. By the end of August, consumer traffic was down only 24.6% at outdoor shopping malls compared to pre-pandemic foot traffic, according to research from Placer.ai. This is a significant recovery from March and April, when outdoor foot traffic was down nearly 100%. Indoor malls have not fared as well. The same report shows that indoor mall foo traffic, while also vastly improved from March and April, is still down 37.2% from pre-pandemic levels.
