Who doesn’t likes spending their weekend hanging out in the shopping mall with their friends and family? A shopping mall is a like a world within a world. One can do a vast number of activities in a shopping and the best part is that it will not cost you anything.
Shopping cannot be done for free but window shopping can be done without you having to pay a single penny. Call up your friends and book a day exclusively to walk around the mall, going from one shop to another, eyeing the price tags, checking out the latest stuffs in the market and making fun about the dummies being kept for display outside the shops.
A cool environment during the summers
Summers make it difficult to step out of our houses in the hot and humid weather. Planning an outing in the park or some other picnic spot is not possible during the hot summer weather. So, in the end we are left with only one option and that is to go to the shopping mall where we can enjoy the chilled environment and roam around the mall without feeling sweaty.
Catching up with your long lost friend
Most of the time we want to meet up with an old friend but then situations like our home being occupied, the weather being extremely hot, hold us back from setting up a certain date for the meet up. At such a moment, the best thing is to plan meeting up at the shopping mall where you will not be troubled by the heat, and even if the place is crowded, no one really bothers about the other person. So you can have a private and quality time with your friend.
Passing your time with your favourite pastime hobby
Got little kids at home, be it your siblings or your niece and nephews, it makes it terribly impossible to carry out favourite pastime hobbies. No worries, if your hobby is an indoor one, like reading, writing, art work etc, then you can freely sit in the shopping mall and do your thing without being bothered or disturbed.
Studying or working
Sometimes the place where we can concentrate on our studies or work is somewhere unknown, that is some place which is not home to us. A shopping mall provides us a really good environment since it is not very noisy so one can work or study in there without feeling distracted.
How can we forget that now mostly all shopping malls provide free WIFI connection thus giving you access to the internet free of cost. You can carry your laptop find a comfortable spot and starting clicking away.
Carrying out surveys
These days students at university level get lots of research projects in which they have to carry out surveys. Carrying out a survey at the mall is one great idea as there are people from all kinds of age groups and all sorts of background. You will come across professionals, students and as well as housewives.
Eating at the shopping malls
You might wonder that how can be eating free at shopping mall. Well, eating can be free if one gets something cooked from their home. There is no such shopping mall rule which says ‘outside food not allowed’. You can plan a one dish party with your friends at the mall and enjoy your day chit chatting and gossiping.
With so many activities one can do at the shopping mall that too free of cost, why not avail this opportunity and plan out for a wonderful evening weekend out of your home.
