Here is a quick post to give some updates. These are some of the projects in the works for 2023. I will get to updating the comments later on today. I hope everyone has a great holiday week!
Almeda Mall December 2023.
For now the mall is doing great, but there is trouble on the horizon. Burlington is building a new store just across the road and is rumored to be leaving the mall early next year. The building that Burlington is currently in is really showing its age. The building will more than likely need to be demolished if a new department store wants to move into the mall.
Center court was all decked out for the holidays.
Neon signage in the food court.
Sears Hometown store closings
Pasadena closed in June 2022. Opened in November 2021.
Grand opening signs in the already closing store.
Willowbrook Closed in August 2022, opened in January 2022.
As of mid-December this store is now closing along with the last Sears Hometown stores.
University Mall/ University Plaza
The old Peanut Shack menu board!
San Jacinto Mall demolition and aftermath.
Macroplaza Mall update
The church next to the former Dillard's was the only place open in this section of the mall. Only 8 businesses/church was still left at this point in November.
Nothing is left in the food court, but a couple of TV's are still on.
Crickets on this Sunday afternoon.
Boarded up windows at the food court entrance.
Sears Auto Center long gone......
Sears Hometown shutters are down and signage posted.
The former Macy's loading dock appears to have had some kind of recent fire. I also saw some remnants of people living next to the other side of the store (not pictured).
These are my more recent retail visits. I have a few more Fiesta stores as well to post in 2023. Stay tuned!
