    Westdale Mall

    I dwelled in Cedar Rapids for a couple of years, and I went to Westdale Mall frequently during that time. Westdale has declined quite a bit in years past, and there was an anchor store that shut down, and there was an ownership situation, so I decided to write something about this dead mall. There’s [...]

    Savannah Mall

    The Savannah Mall in Savannah Georgia has had an interesting life, with some serious peaks and troughs in popularity. While it is currently not doing too badly, it couldn’t really be said that this is a thriving mall at this point in time. After a serious dip in foot traffic a few years ago, efforts [...]

    The Tallahassee Mall

    The Tallahassee Mall in Tallahassee, Florida opened in 1971, as the second major mall in the Tallahassee area. It was originally a popular destination despite its proximity to another mall, with its anchors of Woolco, Montgomery Ward and Gayfer’s bringing in plenty of foot traffic, as well as its many smaller stores and eating options. [...]

    The Hampshire Mall in Hadley, MA

    The Hampshire Mall in Hadley MA has had a lot of success, but also has a reputation as something of a cynical development, as when it was built in the late 1970′s, it effectively killed off the Mountain Farms Mall it was built next door to. The Hampshire Mall took so much business away from [...]

    Osceola Square Mall

    I visited Osceola Square Mall back in November of 2003. At that time it was really suffering. The only anchor was Dillards. I think that only one botique store was open and that was a shoe shop. The mall looks aged on the exterior but the interior is clean and sparkling. The tile floors look [...]

    Oglethorpe Mall Savannah, Georgia

    The Oglethorpe Mall opened in April 1969 in Savannah, Georgia on the newly expanded Abercorn Expressway. The basic design of the mall was a dumbbell mall, a long corridor with an anchor at each end. At the north end there was a Belk store and at the South end there was a Sears store. Belk [...]

    Haywood Mall

    Opened in 1980, Haywood Mall is your typical regional mall. The mall opened with four anchors: J.C. Penney at the north end, Rich’s and Belk-Simpson across from each other at the center, and Sears at the south end. Somewhat oddly (to me, at least), the yellow pages for 1980 and several years later include a [...]

    Military Circle Mall in Norfolk, VA

    The Military Circle Mall in Norfolk Virginia is a mall that is failing to attract the kind of floor traffic and prime retailers it could in its glory days, however isn’t quite a “dead mall” yet. The mall is largely a quiet one, yet it does still attract some regular shoppers who tend to visit [...]

    Lenox Square Mall

    Easily qualifying today as “super regional”, Atlanta’s LENOX SQUARE MALL had more humble beginnings. The center was first conceived in the mid-1950′s as an open-air shopping plaza of 52 retailers. It was originally anchored by two department stores, Rich’s and Davison’s, and -upon its grand opening in August of 1959- featured a Colonial supermarket, Kresge [...]
