A mall is a large building or collection of buildings containing a variety of retail stores and often restaurants. Many malls are enclosed with interior walkways between the shops, but strip malls house many stores with exterior entrances and sidewalks running along the length of the building. One of the earliest examples of a public "mall" is Rome's Trajan's Market, which was built between 100-110 AD, and is still in existence today.
