Pluit Village is a mall that was just renovated in 2011, but the elevators are kept intact until the flooding comes to the area of Pluit in January 17th, 2013 that causes all elevators shut down.
And months have gone without one of the passenger elevators taken back in service. I, the petition maker, hope Lippo cares about this property and modernize the elevators as soon as possible.
I believe Neshaminy Mall should implement a Parental Escort Policy for the safety of others & to increase revenue for the stores of Neshaminy Mall.
Malls across America have started implementing a "parental escort policy," which means that teens under the age of 18 will have to be with a parent/guardian who is 21 or over in order to enter the mall. Most malls have these restrictions only on weekend evenings, but some are going so far as to keeping them in place 24-7.
The Mall of America has implemented this policy. Their website states the following…
“At Mall of America®, safety is a top priority.
We welcome all youth to Mall of America®, however on Friday and Saturday evening’s youth under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult 21 years or older from 4 p.m. until close. One adult may supervise up to 10 youth. During the Parental Escort hours, anyone 21 years or younger should be prepared to show a Mall of America employee identification card or one of the following photo I.D.'s:
▪ United States Driver's License
▪ United States State-issued I.D.
▪ Resident Alien Card
▪ United States Military I.D.
▪ Mexican Consulate I.D.
▪ Canadian I.D.
No form of college or high school I.D. will be accepted, even if accompanied by a state driver's license permit application.
To obtain a Minnesota State Identification Card, contact your local driver exam office, driver’s license renewal office, or call 651-296-6911”
Since Neshaminy Valley Mall has a movie theater, another mall, Boulevard at Capital Centre in Largo, Maryland, has implemented this policy as well…
“Youths under the age of 18 must determine pick-up arrangements prior to 9:00 p.m. or immediately upon store closing or end of movie. Youths remaining at the Boulevard for the purpose of shopping at a retail establishment after 9:00 p.m. must be picked up at that location.”
An article featured in Time Magazine entitled “Bye-Bye Mall Rats” by Julie Rawe; states, “46 of the 1,200 enclosed malls in the U.S. have adopted parental-escort policies, and others are likely to join them soon…” The article goes on to later state, “As more kids flock to shopping centers, walkways get blocked, older customers jostled and strollers overturned amid the horseplay. Even teens blame their peers. "People just hang out there and do dumb stuff, and we have to pay for it," says Jordan Keinert, 17...”
The safety of others is not the only reason why this policy should be set into place. Mid Rivers Mall (St.Louis, Missouri) put their "parental escort policy" in action and they reported a higher percentage of customers and sales. After a month, their mall traffic was up 5% on Friday/Saturday nights, and depending on the category, sales went up 3% - 10%.
An article featured on ABC News.com entitled “New Policies Exterminating Teen Mall Rats” states the following “…"There has to be a balance," …"The problem a developer has is if it becomes a hangout, it becomes scary for older customer. That's the department store customer, and that's the anchor of the center.” Castaldo of Crossgates Mall said sales across his mall have gone up as older customers have felt welcome again, and now that kids come in with mom and dad's wallets. "Now instead of teens just spending $10 on something, parents are coming in with their credit cards,"
I believe Neshaminy Mall should implement a Parental Escort Policy for the safety of others & to increase revenue for the stores of Neshaminy Mall. Help make this happen by signing this petition & writing to Neshaminy Mall through their website, www.neshaminymall.com.
The shopping malls have become a favorite place of Filipinos to relax, unwind and shop. The accessibility of these establishments at workplaces and schools make it even more appealing to the public even on weekdays. Also, they provide a 'one-stop-shop' in which you can purchase all the things you like - from your needs to your wants.
These establishments also replaced the traditional public places like public plazas and parks, and one of the major reasons for this shift is the increasing crimes happening on streets like bag-snatching and kidnappings. The citizens, seeing the private security guards, find the mall as a safer alternative.
However, last September 21, 2011, two teens were killed in a shooting incident inside one of the biggest mall operators in the country. The PNP just passed by on the limp body of the victims while waiting for the rescuers. No first aid was provided.
This incident was the third of such incident that happened in one of the biggest malls in the Philippines. The second, a wife shot his husband who was a sales clerk in the mall, and the third, a security guard who was killed during a shootout. And, there could have been more unreported cases to add on this list.
If there could have just been an emergency clinic with trained medical staff, furnished with emergency equipment, precious lives could have been saved.
Local government units, most especially the chief executive, must act accordingly as mandated to them under the law, that the safety and general welfare of the people must be their utmost consideration. Hence, there should be an ordinance for the mandatory creation of Clinic in Malls to compel mall owners to comply with the requirement.
Let us keep the malls, still, a happy and safe place to go.
I am writing to the Greenwood SC residents and surrounding areas to petition more shopping for Greenwood SC. Greenwood is growing in many areas including population, neighborhoods, and companies. But the one thing that Greenwood is very much in need of is shopping and department stores.
I can't tell you the number of times I hear people of Greenwood SC and surrounding areas complaining of not having anywhere to shop for clothing, shoes, toys for kids, crafts/cake supplies, fabrics, home decor, and the list goes on and on. We have Walmart and KMart as our two largest stores and the mall is a disgrace to our town. We had more back in the 1980's than we do now.
In the 1980's we had a decent mall and more shopping than we do today. Gas is so expensive these days it is ashame we have to travel at least an hour away to get the things we need. When you do go try to find something it is impossible to find what you need and people are then forced to go out of town to shop.
I drive through towns smaller than Greenwood and it is amazing to me when I see shopping and department stores being newly built. It saddens me that Greenwood can not take this in consideration and make some changes that we are in desperate need of.
