Ghetto Mall

Ghetto Mall | Nickname | For the same reason the parody twitter account was created, Kingsgate Mall is nicknamed Ghetto Mall. With its fading 70s decor, odd-ball mix of discount stores, collection of Keno-playing locals, and its all-important liquor store, the moniker is apt, if also a little insensitive.

Usage | “If you’re going to Ghetto Mall can you pick me up a six-pack and some Tupac Shakur bed sheets?”explore-the-lexicon
