It's surely one of the pitfalls of the mall.

I think it speaks to a bigger issue.. Jackson Square has failed completely to adapt to the more modern, present day Downtown Hamilton.

Not sure if it's laziness or just unwillingness to adapt.

Jackson Square.ca made its debut in honour of the mall's 40th anniversary and is basically just mall hours, a PDF directory and a leasing prospectus.

Oh God.... That is horrible. I could design something better and I have basically zero website design skills...

I was away for a few weeks, but I see the new Tim's is open. No seating that I saw.

I wonder how many malls in Canada have two?

Eastgate Square, Eaton Centre, West Edmonton Mall...I'd say that's at least 3. XD

Tons. It's not rare at all. Hell we have intersections in this city with 2 or 3 of them there (King and Dundurn, Upper James and Stone Church)

It's technically a food court location and an even smaller coffee and donuts only kiosk near the new wing of the mall, by where the Walmart used to be.

New Pretzel Place in Jackson Square next to Booster Juice coming soon: "Mo's Golden Pretzel"

Anyone been at their other locations before? I used to love Auntie Annie's when they were in Jackson.

hipsters are still eating pretzels? I realize they move from trend to trend, it's very annoying. But I don't think they are eating pretzels. I would like to see a hot dog shop. It;s the hipster thing in WNY right now. Elmwood Village makes Locke look like the 90s with a donut shop. and I think the craft beer thing has topped out just like escape rooms.

I have a friend who will punch randomly hipsters on the street in the face, with their stupid haircuts now. It is funny. He hates them more than me.

As a "hipster" I'm not really sure I understand the anger toward a certain group of people doing their own thing, especially not with such anger that violence is necessary.

I think anyone who acts like this or takes enjoyment from such behaviour needs to go away somewhere and evaluate what kind of human being they are, and what kind they want to aim to be.

Just stopped by to see what was the latest happening in my favourite urban mall in the province and I am shocked! Shocked at what I read!

Older people like pretzels too you know?

@realcity has been trolling the interwebs for a very, very long time - he knows what he's doing.

I'm not sure if he's a genius or a sociopath but it's best to take what he says with a grain of salt (or two).

Wally Parr? I dunno if I've seen any hipsters in there but they did renovate a year or two ago.

Sam's Cheese and Meats at the Farmers' Market is now serving steamed artisanal hotdogs.
