The EBSC store in the vicinity of our house is in Fairfield Commons, Dayton's newest and largest mall. It always seems at least as busy as its mall competition: Parisian, Lazerus, Penney and Sears. We shop there. However, this is a flagshop store that is more upscale than the typical EBSC. I suspect the real question is how are the 60 some older stores in small towns and cities across Indiana, Ohio and West Virginia doing. Also, I also observe that the strip mall discount stores (Best Buy, Walmart, Target, etc.) that saturate the area around the mall itself often seem busier. I suspect these are the real competition.
