Between early 1988 and early 1990, the mall was given a thorough makeover. Penney's built a larger store on the north end of the complex and a 9-screener was added on a new upper mall level. Caldor, on the south end of the mall, had opened in 1983.
One of many classic mall and retro retail internet sites, the MALL HALL OF FAME is a "Mid-mod Mall Museum", centered on American shopping centers built during the mid-20th century (1946-1979). There are short articles, photos, and at least one physical layout drawing for every mall inducted. Please check your favorite mall articles often as new content is frequently being added.
