I agree, I think a lot of the comments about Jackson Square were completely inaccurate. There are still empty storefronts a plenty in Jackson Square. The strip around Nations, the corner store by the LCBO, where the Deli at the Square used to be, the 2nd Foodcourt outside the Farmers Market, just to name a few off the top of my head. That's completely apart from the liquidation store hub that is nearly the entire city centre.

Second, the mall is NOT busy at all hours of the day. After 6:00pm the place is a ghost town, despite the mall itself being open. Just about everyone but the Sheraton, the Cinemas (both whose buisness model requires them to stay open at later hours), Tim Hortons, Nations and the some of restauruants that open onto King St have shut down, whereas if you look at other major commercial centres in the city (Meadowlands, Limeridge, Eastgate) the norm is 9:00pm.

I'll agree, it's better then it was, but Jackson Square is still a second grade shopping centre at best.
