Letter: Kingman does need a mall

I just read the opinion of an individual who felt we didn’t need a mall. I totally disagree. While he did make some good points, we do need a mall .

When I shop for clothing, there is nothing in Kingman to buy decent clothing or shoes. There are no craft stores if one is into crafts. There is a small bead store and I hope he makes it, but he doesn’t have much.

The Penneys is entirely too small. There are too many discount and secondhand stores.

When I shop I go to Lake Havasu City, Bullhead City or even Las Vegas, and so do several friends.

Kingman has the basics: grocery stores, doctors and a hospital.

I’ll go to Walmart or Kmart if I need a small kitchen appliance or meds. Walmart is too small and overshopped.

Yes, Kingman is a historic area for tourists,but there needs to be better shopping for all the residents.
