This short story was originally published on the Scribbler in July 2014. It will be part of the new short story collection - Four Boxes of Memories - coming this fall!
Many people know that I work for Peoples Jewellers at Champlain Place, a Mall in Dieppe, New Brunswick.
I imagined a Mall in Outer Space - it could happen some day!
The Far Out Mall
Copyright is held by the author.
On Mac99 manufacturing takes up levels 14 and 15. Level 16 is dedicated solely to education. Security headquarters, the armory, admin, governmental offices, entertainment facilities, a worship hub, and hospital are all on level 17, as is the shopping center. One Octagonal is solely devoted to trade. The ethnic food franchises are in main entrance. The second hub is where the larger franchises are located, SpaceMart, Future Shop and Fong’s Hardware taking up half the floor area. Beyond that there are boutiques and specialty shops.
Thanks for dropping by the Scribbler. Hope you enjoyed the Far Out Mall.
