Blackest Friday: Westside Pavilion's Ghost Town

Over at LA Observed, Kevin Roderick (who took the photo above) writes that he "had to kill some time before seeing ‘The Favourite’ so walked over to see what a dying mall looks like on Black Friday weekend. Why even keep the lights on?" Check out his Instagram for some truly sad photos of an empty Westside Pavilion. Macy's and Nordstrom have already left; at this point, how can any of those remaining stores even stay in business? As the L.A. Times wrote, the plan is to turn the mall into business offices by 2021. But there's no way any of the remaining shops can hold on that long.
