Amazon may breathe new life into mall properties across the country.
The Wall Street Journal says Amazon executives are in talks with mall-owner Simon Property Group to turn some of the country’s closed Sears and JC Penney stores into fulfillment centers.
It could be a win-win; as more Penneys and Sears close throughout the U.S., Amazon could bring jobs back to some of the retailers’ former employees.
It most likely would also mean that you would get that Amazon package delivered even faster (in case two day delivery isn’t fast enough for ya.)
While Reuters reports that Simon Property Group owned 108 malls in the country as of 2016, the Wall Street Journal couldn’t confirm how many stores are being considered by Amazon as fulfillment centers.
