After viewing “Heaven Is for Real” for my weekly film review for the Syracuse New Times site this afternoon, my dear wife Karen and I took a little walk around the Syracuse mega shopping, dining and entertainment complex Destiny USA.
The entertainment and dining portions seemed to be business as usual. Eat-in restaurants were all seating hungry folks.
But it looked like just one stand in the ample food court was open, a joint called Chicken Now.
And all but one retail store appeared to be closed for Easter.
One young woman was handing out fliers for a store by the name of Fossil. Karen tells me it’s a clothing store where people younger than us might want to shop. Any takers would get an extra 25 percent off, the advertisement promised.
It seemed odd by reassuring to see so many stores closed for the holiday.
Do you think department stores should be open or closed on Easter?
