Senjakala Gerai Retail?

Beberapa waktu yang lalu kita mendapat berita yang mendadak, bahwa Matahari retail memutuskan untuk menutup gerainya di Pasaraya Blok M dan Manggarai. Hal ini tidak mengejutkan buat saya, karena beberapa kali ke tempat tersebut memang sepinya ga ketulungan. Hal ini menurut saya menggambarkan perubahan perilaku konsumen dari belanja di pusat perbelanjaan menjadi belanja online. Masyarakat semakin dimanjakan oleh kemudahan belanja online dan apabila tren ini berlanjut akan makin banyak Gerai Retail yang akan tutup. Hal ini mungkin akan terus terjadi setidaknya di kota kota besar di Indonesia, namun pertumbuhan Gerai tersebut masih ada di kota dengan ukuran medium dan kecil.

Hal ini tidak hanya terjadi di Indonesia, bahkan di Amerika Serikat telah banyak sekali Mal yang tutup. Sampai Dann Bell melakukan dokumentasi dalam channel youtube, The Dead Malls Series.

Terakhir, saya tanya seberapa sering anda pergi ke Mal? Makin anda jarang belanja di Mal makin cepat tren ini akan berlanjut.

Mall, bentuk pembangunan semu Jakarta

i dare say that malls built around jakarta is the picture of “pembangunan semu”

do u need those malls? do we? we should ask ourself,,, what if they dont exist?

lack of public space made those malls always crowded everyday, especially on weekend,,, why? because they think they have no other choice

human is communal, they’d love to gather, share some stories, with people who had something in common, n the easiest place to meet are malls

i miss Malang n jogja,, in malang we gather in a friends house, coffe shop beside the street, a park, even cemetery haha,,,

in jogja, people gather in angkringan,,, the economic level doesnt matter, from entrepreneurs to the tkg becak. no boundaries

but in Jakarta, mall just become lifestyle, or i can even say way of life. eat? mall sports? mall refreshing?
mall shop? mall

if the malls provide beds for customers, maybe people will sleep there 😉

unfortunately, the consumerism culture becoming a national trend,people start 2 want stuff they dont need, or worse, stuff they cant afford

i admit, i still go to the malls. but i reduce the frequency,, 😉 if i meet people or looking some stuff. it should have a purpose

high schoolers n college go to the mall almost everyday,, if they dont have a job? wheres the money from? no problem if their parent rich

but if their parents not rich? who will bear their expensive lifestyle? crime and prostitute is the answer

the disparity between the rich n the poor widening,,, the middle class trying to act like the rich lifestyle,,, which they cant afford

eventually, the middle class drown into the sea of debt and being a poor class,,, the middle class is gone,,, *worst scenario

or, if the middle class live simple,, being frugal n controlling their expenditure. they can be rich if they manage their money right
