LIMA MALL, circa-1975. The Leader was now a Dayton-based Elder-Beerman. A West Wing addition, dedicated in February 1972, is shown in gray. With this expansion, J.C. Penney became a walk-thru anchor, similar to department stores at Chicago's GOLF MILL CENTER, Los Angeles' DEL AMO FASHION CENTER and Jacksonville's REGENCY SQUARE.
