ok, i admit i am not a mall goer and when i visit PP, only go to Aeon 1 cause the gf an sisters like to bowl,
BUT i see its usually empty
what with all these new malls going up and the customer base not really growing by leaps and bounds, seems each gets a smaller piece of the small pie.
Is it just a money laundering operation?

I have asked myself the same question so many times.. Why are these investments made here? It is crazy.

Aeon 2 during the weekday is a total ghost town. There was about three other people in the whole place when I was there.

I went to Aeon 1 today and it was packed. I went to Aeon 2 last week and it was packed. The Aeon 2 aquarium however has been trying to sell off their fish tanks on Facebook the past couple weeks. Perhaps they are closing soon. The food court on the 3rd floor in Aeon 1 near the cinema is currently closed for renovations.

Of course they will be empty in the middle of the week. People who earn money don't have time to loiter in malls when there is work to be done. I don't think that's an indicator of bad cash flow.

These are the big questions, so well done for asking them. The less you know the better off you'll be.

I don't really know what time you guys go in malls (weekday mornings?) but visitor numbers are up in both Aeon malls. Also business is getting better each year. This is mainly because more suitable shops have opened as well as more restaurants and entertainment facilities have opened.

OK, i assume weekends are busy, BUT how many of those many people you all see are actually BUYING<
not just walking aorund an maybe grabbing a meal, using the supermarket or visiting the movie/bowling?
