There are malls all across America lying derelict and abandoned, gutted and left to the elements like an ice cream cone that has been dropped on the sidewalk.
A retail boom and subsequent economic crash left nothing but empty buildings full of empty racks in its wake, and now these haunting spaces serve as nothing but reminders of all the Gap sales and Hot Dogs on a Stick that could have been.
A Facebook group calling themselves the Dead Mall Enthusiasts have been accepting submissions from photographers and urban explorers who have braved the horrors of an abandoned JC Penney's and lived to talk about their experience.
The images in their collection are a horrible sight to behold, especially if you're a shopaholic!
