Long story short I found myself at the food court at Monmouth Mall today for lunch. While I got a platter of chicken and veggies from the Asian place I was surprised by a few of my observations while eating.
Salad works, Subway, Sobrero (or whatever pizza place it was) and Nathan's are all gone. (Perhaps another place I couldn't recall is gone) Salad works and Subway were both replaced by a new store but the rest remained vacant. That's a 30% vacancy rate at a major mall food court.
Also I couldn't believe the constant line at Chik Fil A. Check your political or religious views at the door Chik Fil A had a constant line of 1-2 dozen people in line the entire time I was there, which was 2:30-3pm, not even prime lunch hour.
The gyro place and the Cajun place did -0- customers and the way the cashier at the gyro place was distracted playing around it didn't seem like she expected anyone the rest of the day.
I actually decided to take a pic however it doesn't really show just how pathetic the rest of the good traffic besides Chik Fil A was.
Just out of curiosity does anyone know what the rent for a location in the mall like this is?
