    Chicago Place Mall

    Just a couple of blocks north of North Bridge Mall, shoppers will find a mall by the name of Chicago Place. Unfortunately, this mall is pretty dead in reality, but still serves as an interesting establishment to say the least. Chicago Place is actually a 49 story building on Michigan Avenue, the top 41 floors [...]

    Sunrise Mall – Corpus Christi, Texas

    One of the late bloomers in the era where a lot of enclosed shopping malls were popping up throughout the US, was Sunrise Mall in Corpus Christi. Though plans for the mall began in 1979, it wasn’t until two years later that the mall would official open their doors on February 4th, 1981. Originally, the [...]

    Southtown Mall – Fort Wayne, Indiana

    The Southtown Mall establishment had plenty of potential room to be a huge mall and a major attraction for local residents as well as people from across the country. Despite all that Southtown had going for it, it would end up failing in the end, and some people blamed the closure on poor management and [...]

    Salisbury Mall – Salisbury, MD

    There are hundreds of different malls and shopping centers through the United States, yet it is still pretty rare to come across a mall with as much history and retains such an interesting past as Salisbury Mall. Although the mall is now closed, it still has over 35 years of stories to tell, beginning with [...]

    Richmond Mall – Richmond, Kentucky

    The city of Richmond is by no means a ‘big city’, but it does offer some of the things that you might see in larger cities throughout the United States. With a population of only 31,000, it’s a little surprising to see that the city is actually home of Eastern Kentucky University, as well as [...]

    Randall Park Mall – North Randall, OH

    The story behind Randall Park Mall is actually rather interesting, it all began when a businessman by the name of Edward John DeBartolo proposed a shopping center, office buildings, and apartments all in the same complex. Initially the nearby Garfield Mall had been planned to be much bigger than it ended up being, and the [...]

    Port Plaza Mall – Green Bay, Wisconsin

    This mall has a promising beginning, and plenty of room to make things work, but sometimes there just isn’t anything that can be done to save a failing mall. Port Plaza Mall had its fair share of ups and downs throughout the 29 years that it was in existence, along with plenty of store location [...]

    Palm Springs Mall – Palm Springs, CA

    There are plenty of malls in the United States, however, there are also a lot of malls that are really dead and serve no purpose other than a reminiscence of what used to be a prosperous mall. Unfortunately for Palm Springs Mall, that is indeed the case, even though the mall has not officially closed [...]

    East Hill Mall – Bakersfield, California

    Outdated, dying, mostly vacant, these are all things that describe the East Hill Mall located in Bakersfield. You can visit the mall on almost any given day and see just a handful of cars in the parking lot, which means it’s a great location for those who dislike crowds, but leaves much to be desired [...]

    The Old Taunton Mall

    Back in the day, before Taunton was bestowed with The Silver City Galleria, the Old Taunton Mall, located off Oak street, was one of the only malls around. Some of the stores that stick out in my mind were Bradlees (which I guess was probably the main anchor) Cherry & Webb, Radio Shack, Stop and [...]
