    McAlister Square Mall Greenville SC

    Aah, McAlister Square. This was the first enclosed mall in the upstate, if not the whole state. (Dutch Square in Columbia may hold that title – I’m not sure.) Newspaper reports show the mall opening on what used to be farmland in 1968. The mall is your typical, early 1970s, one-story, T-shaped mall. I’ve seen [...]

Arizona malls are fascinating, and they come and go in interesting ways, but this one really takes the prize here. Phoenix-area retail areas are pretty interesting in general, because of all the [...]
