BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — We are truly in the dog days of summer, and at Boca Raton’s Town Center Mall, management company Simon Properties (NYSE: SPG) couldn’t care less.

In our latest edition of Boca Rudeton™, a man is seen with what appears to be his dog stretched out on a public couch designed for humans. While there is certainly no sign prohibiting animals from using the couch, there is no sign welcoming them, either. In a civilized society, the assumption is that dogs stay out of a mall, but if they must go shopping, they stay off off of the seats used by humans. Parents are often seen using these seats with their little children, assuming they are free of animal saliva.

Readers constantly ask BocaNewsNow.com why non-service animals are allowed en masse into Town Center mall. Our answer: we really don’t know. The mall never answers. Perhaps Simon Properties is so desperate for shoppers who have largely turned to Amazon and other online retailers — to avoid grossness like dogs at the mall — that the company will now do anything to attract business.

Man with dog on couch at Boca Raton Town Center Mall: you are today’s “Boca Rudeton™” recipient. Congratulations! Don’t want to be seen here? Don’t be rude here!
