American malls are dying out.

Retail complexes all over the US are being clobbered by store closures sweeping the country.

Retailers have announced more than 8,600 closings so far in 2019 and according to a report done by Credit Suisse in 2017, between 20% to 25% of malls will close by 2022.

For many malls, this is an impossible task. 

Take a look at some of these haunting photos below that show how badly America's malls have been hit:
