If you walked round one of the big shopping malls in Central Florida over the holidays, the Florida Mall or Millenia, you’d think business was booming.

Although elsewhere in the Orlando area, some malls aren’t doing so well. Artegon just announced it will shut its doors in a couple weeks and Fashion Square Mall on Colonial Drive filed for bankruptcy trying to stave off foreclosure.

90.7’s Matthew Peddie was joined by Orlando Sentinel retail reporter Kyle Arnold and John Crossman with Orlando retail leasing, management and investment sales firm Crossman and Company, to talk about the state of malls.
