Hello,Do you happen to have anything on Wilkes mall from Wilkesboro, NC?I do not but I would LOVE to see some pics or something.
If you ever make it back to the Tampa Bay area, it would be awesome if you cold check out Countryside Mall in Clearwater, Tyrone Sqaure in St. Pete, and Gulf View in Port Richey. The first two are similar to Westshore; they should have died but didn't. And Gulf View is an interesting mall...they just changed owners, and in a two year span they lost both Macy's and JCP leaving Sears and Dillards. It's a weird mix! Plus, TJMaxx and Best Buy are two awkward anchors, and there a are a bunch of local stores. I think it will be dead in a few years.I know it might be hard for you to get down here but it'd be awesome!
Any thoughts of an entry for Charlottetown Mall? Thank you for preserving the malls' stories. Catawba and Lenoir malls were part of my teen years. Charlottetown Mall was part of most of my preteen Saturday mornings, and I wish I could have walked it again before demolition.
Parkhill Mall - Riverside - Tarboro NC - As of 29Nov2018 the mall appears to be coming back to life. The mall is no longer partitioned off and you can walk the entire mall. Roses is supposed to open (again) in 2019 in the old Belks location, which was Roses after belks went out of business around mid 90’s. There is now also a karate instructor in the mall. The dome area by the interior belks entrance is in bad shape, looks like bad water damage, Sheetrock gone, rotten looking wood (may have been why it was partitioned off from rest of mall). There are several signs that space is for lease. The theater is in business and is cheapest place to see movies in the area. In the 90’s There also was a Dairy Queen (current Mexican restaurant), a donut shop (opposite side of entrance at Mexican rest) and an arcade in the mall mid 90’s. Who knows what the future holds for the mall - the economy is fairly good right now, maybe that is why some life appears to be coming back.
