Good riddance! My guess is that the public voted with their dollars and decided to stop supporting that awful place!

Now if we could just get the HP management to get rid of all those persistent, pesky people peddling items out of the kiosks all over the mall. It's like running an obstacle course trying to get through all those obnoxious people!
