Empty shops

You see more and more empty shops in the main shopping area's as here in Almere. The rise of internet shops and the economic situation combined made it very difficult for the retailer with shops in the middle segment to keep their head above water. This was a former shoe store. One for weekend reflections as thought and as sight. For more weekend reflections go here.

  2. Yes. I saw an photo article online of abandoned shopping malls in America. Seems to be more and more of them these days. Great photos too in the piece.

  4. Same here and probably most developed countries. The number of book and music stores is small, and I must confess I usually buy both on Amazon.

  5. Nice reflections.
    We have now empty shops, almost all people are in the countryside of celebrating midsummer fest.
