Lincoln Mall closes and puts into question future of malls

After forty one years, the Lincoln Mall in suburban Matteson has closed. It's a story that isn't altogether uncommon in this era of chain discount stores and e-commerce but how does this closing impact the community of Matteson? We check in with Matteson Village President Andrè B. Ashmore. And, Leonard A. Schlesinger of Harvard Business School joins us for a broader conversation on the modern day economics of the American shopping mall. Photo: Flickr/Fire At Will [Photography]
