We've been seeing a trend at malls all over the country.  Major national chain stores are closing up shop sighting sagging sales due, mainly, to online shopping.  So what is the next store closing at Crossroads Mall in Portage?

We've been informed by some folks who were at Crossroads Mall this week that there are closing signs in and around Eddie Bauer.  While I realize it's all a matter of business and times change and all that, it strikes me as disappointing that this trend continues.  Is it just malls?  Or will many more "brick & mortar" stores keep closing their doors.  Maybe I'm old fashioned but even though I'm not a huge fan of "shopping", I still like to go in, look around, try things on and buy what I like.
