Paul Bauersfeld, CTO of Mobiquity Technologies, commented on the results: “Published retail sales figures suggest a decline of in-store Black Friday shopping, but our data suggests the mall is still a destination for families and Santa visits, even if they may not be going there to shop. Our data is confirming the transition many malls are making to family entertainment centers”.
