The Carson's store at NORTHWOODS MALL was shuttered in 1983. It sat vacant until late 1985, when a St. Louis-based Famous Barr opened in its space. It would last until September 2006.

A late '90s site plan. The mall is basically the same size as in the circa-'73 plan, only an additional 10,000 square feet have been added to its east anchor. Two department store nameplates have also changed. There is the aforementioned Carson's-Famous-Barr and Montgomery Ward, which has morphed into a Sears.
