Miscellaneous photos and mini-updates 2020

 Here is a post with random photos and mini-updates that are too small for update posts by themselves. Some of these photos may have been used before, but there are a lot from 2020. Radio Shack, Sears, a closed off Dillard's second floor and many more are here in this post. 

2020 was a challenging year for all of us. I hope each and every one of you has a much better 2021. Thankfully for the blog, we were able to cover a lot of ground before and after the Covid lockdowns. While I fell short on the list of malls that I planned to visit in 2020, only a couple of malls didn't make the cut for one reason or another. 2020 also marked the end of the Kmart era in Texas, and January 2021 will mark the end of the Sears era in Houston. I have also added some new content to my Youtube channel you can find by clicking here.

As always feel free to leave me a comment below or email me at I do accept guest retail posts if you would like to submit something for the blog.
