6 2004 6512 Coventry Mall, located in Pottstown, Pa., has undergone a number of changes to try and increase its value. A food court was installed and stores were encouraged to spruce up their visuals to make visitors feel like they were in a higher-class mall. Faltering stores were forced out, sometimes by bringing in a more successful competitor right next door. Getting undesirable tenants out is more important than physical renovations. While the mall doesn't look much different from a few years ago, shoppers are spending more. Vacancies are 6%, while sales per square foot are $330, above the national average, from $240 before the make-over.
7 2004 7800 Disney's Dream Desk PC is loaded with Disney content and parental controls, ensured to both entice and reassure parents. The computer comes with a built-in Internet-filtering software that gives parents complete control over what their children have access to from the moment they switch it on. Disney contracted with Medion AG, a German electronics maker, to produce the hardware and handle the distribution of the product. The relatively powerful off-the-shelf system comes with a 2.6GHz Intel Celeron D processor and a 40 gigabyte hard drive running Microsoft Windows XP.
