Now though, the chain is soon to open a franchise in the Mall of America, in Bloomington Minnesota, a suburb just southwest of Minneapolis. Besides the fact that it is an entirely enclosed, four story building with what feel like miles and miles of shops and restaurants, there is no water, no beach, and no sunshine in sight, unless you get a glimpse of the equally mammoth Water Park of America. I already am not a fan of malls, and this mall in particular. You cannot really shop there, unless it is to go into a single store, maybe two, and know what you want, buy it and get out. Mostly you see dazed and confused people wandering around with bags filled with things they probably didn't really want, but felt they needed to buy something. I guess in the heart of winter, with the Nickelodeon Universe theme park in the middle, and endless movie and restaurant choices, it could be a destination spot of sorts out of the cold and snow. Though, picture the outdoor scenes from the movie Fargo and know Minnesota really is that cold and snowy in the winter; putting a tropically themed bar and restaurant on the 4th floor of a mall isn't going to change that. Even my sister agrees this is a misfit. This is over franchising at its worst. There might be cheeseburgers, but this Margaritaville will be no paradise.
