Tony Reese of Cherry Hill would walk a mall to stay in shape. Tanned and trim and 73, Reese kept a brisk pace on a recent spring morning, marveling as the sun poured like juice through a skylight and spilled onto the freshly waxed marble floor. "Pleasant conditions, the most pleasant conditions," Reese remarked as he ambled along on his daily five-mile jaunt at the Cherry Hill Mall. "The temperature never changes in here. It's marvelous. The time goes by very quickly. " Ask him if he would rather walk outside, and Reese talks of cold gusts and car exhaust.

Fugitive Moses S. Clary, sought in the Deptford Mall robbery that turned bloody and took three lives, was arrested without incident last night on a Brooklyn street corner, the FBI said. Clary, 21, of Camden, who had eluded police since the August shootout, could face the death penalty for the robbery, which shattered a quiet summer afternoon at the mall with bursts of gunfire. Clary, who had a police record of relatively minor crimes, is believed to have fled with possibly $100,000 in a bank bag. FBI spokeswoman Linda Vizi said last night that Clary would be taken before a federal magistrate in New York sometime today.

A federal arrest warrant was issued yesterday for Moses S. Clary, 21, of Camden, whom authorities have identified as the second armed robber in Monday's deadly outburst of gunfire at the Deptford Mall. Authorities said Clary, who has an arrest record for petty crime, could face the death penalty for the violent holdup, which left an accomplice and two young bystanders dead and an armored-car courier seriously wounded. FBI agents spent yesterday searching for Clary in Camden and Philadelphia, at an address where he once lived.

For Rudy Matlack, it was to be a simple bank exchange. As an armored-car guard, he had done it scores of times before. For Maureen Lavin, it was a lazy summer day spent shopping with her teenage friends. For Nicholas Morris, it was an ordinary trip to the bank with his sister to cash her paycheck. But nothing was ordinary about that hot day in August last year, when the three young people's lives were irrevocably crossed. The ceiling and walls of the Deptford Mall still bear the scars of the 14 bullets fired there in a wild exchange of gunfire as two armed men robbed Matlack of his three bags of money.

Maureen Lavin, the 15-year-old hit by a stray bullet during a botched robbery Monday at the Deptford Mall, died from her head wound yesterday, bringing the death toll in the mall shootout to three. Lavin was pronounced dead at 6:05 p.m. at Cooper Hospital-University Medical Center in Camden, where she had been in intensive care, a spokeswoman said. As the search continued last night for one or more robbers, police found an older-model black Suzuki Sidekick believed linked to the mall shootout.

For Cheryl Ward, yesterday was like any other day at Deptford Mall - except there were fewer shoppers around. The mother of two hadn't heard of Monday's fatal shootout between an armored-car guard and one of several robbers near the MidLantic Bank branch inside the New Jersey mall. Two people - including one shopper - were killed and two others critically wounded. "If I knew, I wouldn't be here today," Ward said, as she sat on a bench and watched her toddlers play. "It would have made me think twice about the mall just because there was trouble here.

It's not even Veterans Day yet, but guess who's coming to town. That's right. Santa Claus. Although November is usually associated more with turkeys than elves, Santa Claus has begun appearing at malls across the region in a sure sign of holiday creep. On Friday night, he arrived at the Montgomery Mall in North Wales on a fire truck. Across the river, he paraded through Gloucester County's Deptford Mall on Saturday morning. And at the Moorestown Mall a little later, Santa got a warm welcome when he arrived in a limousine with Mrs. Claus with an entourage that included Frosty the Snowman, Jack Frost, elves, and a nutcracker.

If shopping malls are really dying - killed by retail apps, next-day delivery, and those giant "fulfillment centers" rising across Pennsylvania - you wouldn't know it. Not the way big investors like Simon Property Group are buying and selling rival shopping malls. On Monday, Simon - the Indianapolis company that owns one of the largest malls in the United States ( King of Prussia ) and the biggest in Philadelphia ( Philadelphia Mills , the former Franklin Mills) - offered $22 billion, or $91 a share, for national mall chain Macerich Co. , of Santa Monica, Calif.

Ever since discount designer-apparel department store Century 21 signed on in April as an anchor tenant in the Gallery at Market East, retail analysts have speculated what else might move in. Among the names dropped: "fast fashion" brands such as Uniqlo and Forever 21. Maybe a high-end movie theater. Now that Gallery owner Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust (PREIT) has struck a partnership with retail developer Macerich Co. - a joint venture to redevelop the struggling Center City shopping mall - industry observers have a better clue.

It has been a tough week for florists. And restaurants. And jewelers. And airlines. Oh, make that just about any business that depends on customers. After a relentless weeks-long onslaught of rough winter weather, Mother Nature did its best on Thursday to deck what was left of our region's economy. A foot of snow closed malls, shuttered stores, delayed travelers, and kept legions of workers at home with their wallets. "It is like everything else," said economist Joel Naroff of Bucks County.

Karen Donges lives two miles from the Deptford Mall, but you won't see her among the crowds there or at any other mall this holiday season. "I visit the small businesses," Donges said, "because they need us. " Nestled between Black Friday and Cyber Monday is Small Business Saturday, a day for mom-and-pop shops to shine during a time when sales at chain stores stretch through the Thanksgiving weekend. American Express started the nationwide effort to get more people to support local businesses and boost their local economies three years ago, and it has been growing since.

Had it not been for the multiple bags in each woman's hands, it would have been easy to believe Judy Dunn as she and her sisters griped, during a pause inside the King of Prussia mall, that Black Friday had lost its appeal as the Day of the Deals. "They're killing Black Friday, the retailers," said Dunn, a 55-year-old elementary school principal from Broomall, wagging a cookie in her hand before taking a bite. "The sales weren't there like they used to be. " "Black Friday is not the same," interjected Marijo Gannon, 43, of Broomall.

Inside the Burlington Center, '80s hits by groups such as Tears for Fears reverberate from speakers in the forlorn corridors, a reminder of better days. In 1982, when the center opened on what was once Burlington Township farmland along Route 541, department stores and enclosed regional malls reigned over the retail landscape. What a difference a few decades have made. In 2010, Macy's vacated its enormous Burlington store - originally, Strawbridge's - and in 2012 the mall itself was sold at auction.

Charles J. Giunta Sr., 87, the third-generation owner of an Italian Market butcher shop that opened in the early 1900s and closed in the 1980s, died Wednesday, Aug. 22, of heart failure at his South Philadelphia home. The family at one time also owned a wholesale slaughterhouse in South Philadelphia and a pig farm in Deptford, Gloucester County, and in the 1980s spawned the butcher shops of two sons now in the Reading Terminal Market. Until this week, Mr. Giunta was a daily presence at the market, where son Charles operates Giunta's Prime Shop and son Martin runs Martin's Quality Meats & Sausages.
