It should come as no surprise, that over the past 30 years, international visitors to the USA have consistently listed shopping as their “number one activity”, and the list of ‘must have’ items on hand at the massive ‘Mall of America’ (MoA) lures more than four in ten consumers annually. Sixteen million tourists visit MoA each year and spend over US $500 million in the process. The ‘Mall’ is Minnesota’s number one tourist attraction, and a big part of the draw is that there is no sales tax on clothing…and the great thing is everything is under one gigantic roof.
Like felines to catnip visitors flock to the ‘Mall’. The total number of visitors annually to MoA exceeds the combined populations of North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and Canada. The bottom-line is that the Mall is marvellous! So bring plenty of greenbacks or plenty of plastic and wear very comfy walking shoes!
