As you can see, this store had a very nice electronics department at one point. TV's used to wrap around the whole department and there were full shelves all across this area.
Take a good look at the sign in the middle, lol.
When the fountain was still on at the mall.
It was nice to see the We ❤ Texas sign.
Last TV for sale at this location. The electronics department here was one of the better ones just a couple of years earlier. By this time the department was down to just small items.
Out with the old, in with the new. The store closing banner is going up in the background of this photo. This was in October 2018.
A few nights later still in October 2018.
