The Fall of the Mall

What does a recession look like? (click to view it interactively) The New York Times created two maps of a theoretical mall, giving a view as seen through retail sales.

Only Burger King, Denny's and Family Dollar (oops, I have now corrected my previous post, mis-stating that it was Abercrombie & Fitch - thinking that folks still need duds - after "anonymous" pointed out my error, as commented below) are in the "green (or even better, yellow)."

Actually, Abercrombie is dark red...that's Family Dollar in yellow. Makes sense. I wonder what Burger King's doing that McDonald's and Jack in the Box aren't?
