I expect they want people to pay to sit down. In Starbucks for example.

It's not the same thing to have tables INSIDE a store as having tables in a public space. That's not wrong. That's an objective fact.

Excuse me but whatever gives you the idea that anywhere inside a building is "Public Space"

More appropriate is "Space made available to the "Customers"

for trading purposes etc.

Best to do as the others on here say...... Buy something....then feel comfortable about using the "traders facilities" meant for "REAL" customers

In 10 years it never ceases to amaze me how the expats "hog" the seats on the first floor outside Big C at Klang

Usually the same old ....."click"

Whilst those of us with loaded shopping bags have nowhere to even re-tie a shoe lace, let alone take a break

Very well put.  The sense of entitlement of these penny pinching and loitering economic free riders is unbelievable.  A workable and fair solution based on free market economics would be to make the area a cordoned off paid seating area.  Paying customers with receipts from shops who have purchased more than xx baht could also be entitled entry for a set period of time. Exceptions for special cases could be made.

Then, excuse me asking the obvious question, but...................... 🙂

The OP "resides" I believe in Jomtien - so depending on your view maybe a bit of sophistry or just semantics in his response......

I love how you put resides in quotes. Full marks.

Interesting.

I have bought several computers and other expensive purchases in Tukcom over the years.

If they tried something so piggy and obnoxious as that I would go out of my way to never do that again just based on principle.

If you actually seriously think that's a good idea I suggest mall management is not your calling.

Sounds like they need more public seats. People obviously like them and use them.

Have to agree with JT. Altho it could be argued about whether Tukcom is in decline. Sure, the top floors are a desert, especially the 4th which once drew huge numbers of people looking for pirated dvds. The ground floor, 1st-3rd floors are still quite busy. Few go there just for the Tops supermarket, I would suggest, and the nearby Amorn is a rip-off (for repairs, I mean). BUT, outside Tukcom is the most congested, stinky, people-unfriendly shopping area in Pattaya. Cheap, though. I'm sure hassled and harried shoppers would appreciate a little haven inside Tukcom, should its management give it some thought - passing trade is highly prized, after all.

Shopping malls as privately owned public spaces.

It seems that Tukcom didn't get the memo but most of the other malls in town did.
