Location, Location, Location.

One of the things that I find fascinating in central Florida are the shopping centers. There are tons of them. Some are huge like the Waterford Lakes Shopping Center. Some are small with just a few stores. Most look brand new. The people down here call them malls. To me a mall is covered. All the stores are inside a structure. But since the weather is usually nice (it is the sunshine state after all) most of the shopping centers are open and outdoors. A strip mall is a good term for them. But the most interesting thing about the shopping centers down here is that there are medical facilities in almost every one. Like the Waterford Lakes shopping center has a dentist office and a pediatrics office in the middle of it. You can go to Target, Pets-Plus, get some shoes from Skechers and have your children vaccinated all in one convenient location. I think this is weird and funny. Until I saw this shopping center, which is not far from where we live. I posted the picture. The yellow sign...Is this right to have in a shopping center?
