Here is a quick update from the University Mall in Nacogdoches Texas.
This post will feature a lot of the JCPenney which closed in the Summer of 2017 along with over 100 other JCP stores. The large flea market that was in the vacated Bealls anchor space was in the process of moving into empty mall space.
There are some awesome retail gems to be found in this mall and a very nice Belk store. Sadly this and two other small town malls were hit by anchor losses recently. JCPenney here and at Marshall Mall, and Sears at Lufkin Mall.
We start with the JCPenney store that is no more.
Kids clothing and shoes.
Shoes, Women's clothing, and jewelry.
Vintage mirrored glass jewelry counter.
Housewares and shoes
Neon is still in full force inside of the mall.
Looking towards center court from JCPenney
One of the few chain stores still left in the mall. At one time this mall had vintage store fronts from Claires, Waldenbooks, Payless, Gordon's Jewelers, Foot Locker, and of course Bath and Body Works.
Abandoned Foot Locker open to look inside.
Belk side of the mall, looking towards center court. This is the only part of the mall without neon decorations on the ceiling.
The grand center court and vintage Peanut Shack.
