retail leakage n. The loss of local retail sales that occurs when people shop in an area other than the one in which they live.
Living in a city littered with strip malls, and one big ass lame *being remodeled* mall, I would like to thank all the consumers in my city for making this word exsist. If it keeps up we'll have to diaper the bitch. Leakage, be it a drip or dribble, is never a good thing. Wipe your chin dear..... ;)
