I decided to check the MoA out on a trip through the area once.  I really didn't get it.  There were a few nice stores, but mostly it was just multiples of the same stores in every other crummy mall in the US.

I just looked on their directory.  Two American Eagles, two Bare Minerals, two Bath & Body Works, three Claire's, three Journeys, etc.

What's the point of bigger if it doesn't offer you more selection?

The Mall of America is already a tourist destination, especially for foreign consumers who make the trek to Bloomington. Some 42 million visitors come to the mega-mall each year, ranking it among the nation's top tourist attractions.

42 million people have a very different idea of vacation than I do.

Saw the place about 10 years ago on a business trip, had dinner but didn't buy a thing. My wife took the kids there this year and was impressed. There's a water park nearby. I guess I get that, but for me Shopping Is Not A Vacation Destination.

It's the least interesting place in that whole area. I've visited the Cities maybe five times now, and there's just so much more fun stuff to do than go to a gargantuan mall.

If you look forward to going to Mall of America, it's a scientific fact that you're a bad person.

when the Legislature approved a $250 million tax break for MOA

You know, I get it... I really do. But don't bump up the sales tax or cut public services at the same time. I'm not saying they are, but such things do appear to be SOP these days.

tbhouston: according to fark everyone is either on unemployment or going broke thanks to 0bama care

how can they afford to build a larger mall and who are they building it for?? i dont get it

No no no... "normal" people are unemployed and/or going broke.

Rich people are richer than ever.  You know, people who have nothing better to do but fly to Minnefarkingsota just to shop for several days straight and then leave again.

FTFA: By the time the dust settles on $2.5 billion in additions, plans call for the mall to approximately double in size, with as many as 300 new retailers along with glitzy attractions such as an NHL-sized skating rink and a world-class water park.

Are they tacking on West Edmonton Mall?

Geez.... I visited that mall in the early 90s when I was in town on business. Pretty cool watching pee wee hockey players (5 or 6 years old), doing full body checks. Canadians are serious about their hockey.

Will Mall of America also add a pirate ship and dolphin shows?
