West Oaks Mall: In trouble?

The vacancies are on the upswing at West Oaks Mall. The Disney store is gone and several other stores have left or have been replaced by independent retailers. The children's area has been moved to the front of the vacant JCPenney. The mall is in a very busy area of Houston and still in great condition, so why is the mall declining?

Dillard's West Oaks is now a clearance store. I wonder if there is room for two clearance stores in Houston?

The nearly empty former Mervyn's/ Steve & Barry's wing. They have put up the research office to block the rest of the empty wing. Some stores have moved to the Macy's & Sears section of the mall and Journey's will be moving there soon as well. The mall may be trying to empty out this entire wing for redevelopment.

Blurry pictures of the food court. This is when my camera started to mess up. Only seven food/ snack outlets are left.
