According to a recent article on, there may be just 150 malls left in the United States in 10 years, down from 700. Online shopping is the main culprit for the decline in shopping malls nationwide.

Four malls in Connecticut are in danger of going belly up. According to Hearst CT Media, they are the Enfield Square in Enfield, the Crystal Mall in Waterford, the Meriden Mall, and the  Brass Mill Center in Waterbury.

Fortunately, Danbury Fair Mall is still alive and well and is constantly rated as one of the ten best malls in Connecticut. Still, there are many reasons Danbury Fair remains successful. They've added many new features, such as a new Target store scheduled for a 2024 opening, Round 1 Bowling and Amusements currently under construction, and a mega 60,000-square-foot indoor entertainment venue named Kidzklubs.

Danbury Fair is awaiting zoning approval to rebrand the empty Lord & Taylor anchor space into 140 or more apartments, turning Danbury Fair into a 24-hour environment. I invite you to check out my photo gallery about the four Connecticut malls on the chopping block.
