Make the mall work for you.

Jim Cramer, host of CNBC’s Mad Money, says shopping malls aren’t dead — but there’s a harsh truth that retailers must face.

That’s bad news for the big guys like Macy’s and Kohl’s. But it’s fine for you as long as you can position yourself as a high-end retailer.

According to Cramer: “Everyone is too cheap to shop at the mall. It’s just too inconvenient unless you are uber-wealthy and need to see the ultra-luxury wares in person before buying them.”
