When I was a kid, the “nice” store was Sears and the also-ran was JC Penney. You could kind of tell how nice a mall was by which one of those anchor stores they had. Well, that’s all ancient history now. You can see how these two former giants have ultimately followed each other together into oblivion.
On a related note, I am traveling right now, and I have seen America’s future. Her name is Milwaukee.
