Wonderland of the Americas San Antonio
Wonderland of the Americas (formerly Crossroads Mall and Wonderland Mall) is a discount mall near loop 410 and I-10 in northwest San Antonio. The anchors are Burlington Coat Factory, JoAnn Fabrics, Hobby Lobby, The Mercado, and Stein Mart. Super Target is attached to the mall, but the store does not have a mall entrance. This mall is undergoing a similar change of focus as the PlazAmericas Mall in Houston is. All of the anchor spots are filled at the Wonderland but the inside is very empty. This is my first visit to this mall, but labelscar has an article from 2007 with more information and history on this mall.
Here are images from the main concourse of the mall. There are not too many stores left inside of the mall, but the mall is very well maintained.

The mercado; similar to the mercado at the PlazAmericas mall in Houston the blurry sign says bienvenidos.
JoAnn Fabrics anchor
This is the new addition with a food court that was added in the 1980's.
Here are the anchor entrances to the mall. Super Target is not connected to the mall but the building is attached to the mall. The mall has recently been painted with more vibrant colors; the old colors were turquoise green and grey.
