A full view of the Eckerd's mall storefront. As was the case with just about any drug store of this era, it included a Coffee Shop luncheonette. This was before fast food-type restaurants proliferated and put drug store (and 5 & 10) lunch counters out of business.

The mall's resident book emporium. At this time, some of the top selling novels would have been "The Godfather" (Mario Puzo), "The Love Machine" (Jacqueline Suzann) and "Portnoy's Complaint" (Phillip Roth).

The storefront of Turner's, a ladies' and gentleman's apparel store. It is likely that the store would have had at least a few Nehru jackets on sale.
