First, in years past on this weekend, it could be a problem getting into Penn Square Mall; from what I saw driving by, while you might spend a couple of minutes finding a place to park, you would find one. Might have to walk a bit to the entrance, but you could've parked.
Got to Wally World(closest place; I try to avoid the place, but it's difficult) and had no problem parking close to the doors. The place was average Sunday busy, no more.
Doesn't seem much like a 'recovery' going on, at least locally.
