The mall map shows Kay's Jewelry on the upper level by the food court, is that correct?
Is this Kay's location one with doors that you go into the store, or the type that is open to the mall with pull down metal doors?
I also see on the mall map that there are two other jewelry stores right there on the food court. So the question is, why Kay's and not one of the other two?
After studying the mall layout on a map, strategically speaking, this would be the best target for the robbers. It is on the upper level, but on the back side of the mall. The back side upper level is actually on ground level and with a mall exit up there. Years ago, there was a movie theater in that area of the mall. It would be a quick in and out job with an easy escape route on back side of mall away from all of the incoming traffic on the front side. They would have an clear path from there out to the Loop 1604 access road avoiding all of the traffic lights in the main intersection leading to the mall.
Looking at Google street view, I can see what you are talking about. Yes, it does make it easy in/out.
