Why people come to malls?
A demographic survey of consumer behaviour analyses that different age groups come to malls for different reasons. However, most of these audiences are somehow related to advertisement and ease of shopping or cultural industry. Few reasons are highlighted here:
Children who belong to the age group between 5 and 15 years come to malls to buy toys. They come there because they either saw ads in Television or come there as their friends tell them.
Youths who fall in the age category of 15-25 come at the malls to chill out and have fun as well as to show off.
Adults who fall in the age group of 25-45 come at the malls to shop, dine or to watch movies (these audiences are the general target audience of mall advertisers)
Elders who fall in the ager group of 45 and above are mostly audiences who come to shopping malls with rekindled interests to either enjoy their leisure time or to indulge in shopping and related experiences.
