Shopping Center and Shopping Mall Terminology



Eastern Connecticut State University has produced an online glossary of some basic terms asociated with shopping centres, which may be helpful for anyone looking at this sector from an architectural or social standpoint. There are useful definitions of terms which have crept into everyday usage, such as food courts, but also some fascinating lesser-known ones, ‘mall rat’ and ‘mall walker’ being among my personal favourites.
