By 1980, MANCHESTER CENTER had been expanded, climate-controlled and renamed MANCHESTER MALL. The 520,000 square foot complex now had two levels of shopping and a new Gottschalks, Fresno's hometown department store.
One of many classic mall and retro retail internet sites, the MALL HALL OF FAME is a "Mid-mod" mall museum, covering shopping centers of America's mid-20th century (1946-1979). There are short articles, a few 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.
