  1. I've always loved how big the TV frame is compared to the actual TV. Does anyone remember their local mall having a TV lounge-area similar to this? It seems like in Charlotte that Eastland Mall had a similar set-up.

  2. Anyone recognize the store to the left of the TV?

  3. I think that's The Gap :-)

    This whole TV in the mall thing is a bit puzzling to me, honestly. A lot of malls have them, and I see people using them, but you wonder who is really going to the mall to watch TV. I guess it's there for people who don't shop and are there with others.
