How do I counter this argument?
Please do your shopping at independent, local businesses. The mall chain stores do not need your money.
Do the hundreds of people who work in the mall, or in the businesses that surround the mall and depend on mall traffic, need your money?

Now, how do I counter that? That reply seems bogus to me, but I can't put my finger on the specific "why." Give me some brain ammunition, please.
I put this in Grab Bag because it didn't seem a tidy fit for Shopping, Work & Money, or Philosophy.
