Just in time for the holiday shopping season, the Gym Rat badge has a companion for those of us who aren’t quite as active. Today foursquare released the Mall Rat badge as an expertise badge for checking in at malls.
The unlock text reads:
Sharper Image. Gap. That guy selling bedazzled iPhone cases from a kiosk. Itâ€™s always nice to see some familiar faces. Now, weave your way through that pack of toddlers on leashes, grab an Orange Julius, and enjoy the fountainâ€™s soothing gurgles.
The design features the same colors and rat featured on the Gym Rat badge (one of the original 16 core badges), but instead of the dumbells, he’s carrying a shopping bag and a drink.
I especially love the custom tweet text for this badge:

Just like all expertise badges, you’ll be able to unlock Level 1 of this badge by checking in at the same mall five times or at three different ones. Level 2 unlocks after five different venues and each subsequent level takes another five to unlock.
What do you think of the badge? Will you be unlocking it this weekend?
