It’s Only a Mall

Mr Universal Hub, Adam, described the “improved” Natick mall as follows.

It’s a tarted-up paean to American consumerism… especially the new wing with the extra-pretentious stores and the lady playing a harp… To me, it looks like the world’s fanciest airport terminal, only with expensive stores instead of airplane seating areas.

But I’m no shopaholic (Greta, happy with an entire wing of stores for kids and tweeners, like Gymboree and Limited Too, kept asking me what I wanted, and I kept saying “to go home”).

He also links to other accounts of the place, including one on Flickr that I find rather scary.
