Mall St. Vincent 2013 Update

The mall is undergoing a renovation which will make it look like this picture and one further down. The work is currently still going on.
The mall does not have a food court, but there are restaurants in different spots in the mall. We will start with the Sears half of the mall.

Old school escalators still operating in Sears.
Looking from Sears into the mall.
Is this GNC, I couldn't tell for sure, lol.
The center court of the mall had a fountain, we will see what goes there after the remodel. 
The work started in the Dillard's half of the mall.

The Dillard's corridor.
Another image of the future mall. 
Very retro Picadilly Cafeteria, will it remain this way after the remodel?
A few last looks at what will be gone when the mall renovation is finished.

Kmart Longview Tx Late 2013

Here is another Texas Kmart store located in Longview Texas near downtown at 1100 Mc Cann Rd. This store is probably from the 1970's looking at the design of the store and is very similar to the New Iberia Kmart location. This also was one of the busiest Kmart stores I have been to in a long time. When I arrived the parking lot had several rows filled with cars which is always good for business.  
Holiday section facing electronics, no signage at this store like in most Big Kmart stores.

Drug Emporium Longview, Texas

Here is a quick post from another Drug Emporium, this one from Longview Texas. 


This store has many retro features, check out the Thank you sign in the middle of this photo.
Here is the vitamins plus section which carries many vitamins and herbal supplements. This part of the store has been one of the busiest in my most recent visits to the store.
