As shopping malls close, teens seek new ways to socialize


In the 1980’s, shopping malls were hubs of economic activity and social life. Technological advancements have changed consumer habits and led to the demise of malls.

Produced by Jamar Coach, Nicole Cooney, Manuel Cuellar, and Dafala Mobley at Smoky Mountain Youth Media in Knoxville, Tennessee. Instruction provided by William Isom.
