How Do You Even Get A Shop In The Mall?

This is a question I've honestly always wanted to know the answer to. For the most part, malls are full of big retail chains. Occasionally you'll get something unique and local for that specific mall.

When it comes to Westgate Mall, it sounds like the first thing you need to do is contact the person listed on the social media post. That is, if you're wanting to do a pop up store.

A friend of mine received an email from someone claiming to be from Westgate Mall. In it, they mention that they believe the business my friend is associated with would be a good fit for the mall.

While my friend may not have the ability to take them up on the offer, it is interesting to see that Westgate Mall is confident enough in their future to reach out to area businesses to offer space. Plus, they included a link to a sales PDF that mapped out the entire mall.

It was interesting to see how many available spots there were. In all honesty, it looks like our mall is getting pretty full.

Yelp can be a strange and angry place. That's what I found out recently when I decided to sort the reviews by "lowest rating" first.

I was okay with the people upset over bad service and what not. But I came across a few reviews that, for lack of a better word, left me speechless in their scathing negative reviews on some of Amarillo's most iconic places. Prepare your self for plenty of head shaking and "I dunno" shrugs.
