Here we see the mall's Teflon tent-roofed Cafe Food Court. It can now be classed as an historic 1980s structure. It is one of the only Teflon tent mall facilities still in use in the USA. Other tent-roofed malls, such as Houston's TOWN & COUNTRY, San Mateo, California's FASHION ISLAND and Little Rock's UNIVERSITY MALL, have long since been reduced to rubble.
