Linton Promenade Boca Raton News, August 7, 1985

I found this newspaper article last night, after using the newspaper for this entry over at my history blog. I tried googling info about this mall, but nothing was found. I assume through the years, offices absorbed the mall.

Sweet Briar (2015 college closure webpage archive)

Sweet Briar, a womens college is shutting down in August. Us alumni of womens colleges (including myself: Mary Baldwin, 2010) are absolutely devastated.

I visited SBC when I was looking for a womens college to transfer to after graduating from community college back in 2007:

Nooo Diet Coke

“sold out of diet coke until Wednesday”

Suffice to say, SBC never contacted me back after I filled out my application. That’s all in the past now though. I graduated from Mary Baldwin.

I visited SBC in 2009 to attend the MARCUS conference while I was a senior at MBC:

We took a pic with their pink bikes that are available to rent on campus. You can’t ride a bike around MBC, you would die.

I remember sitting on this couch at the prospective student orientation when I panicked and told dad I didn’t want to stay there overnight back in 2007. I sat on this couch in 2009 when I was sick at the MARCUS conference.


I want this couch.

A List of Stores That JC Penney Plans to Close –


Some of these mall names I recognize from reading the emails in my inbox. Locally, the JC Penney in Williamsburg is closing. While the store is just a few years old, its located out in the middle of nowhere, next to a a water park that is only open during the Summer. Wasn’t the old “Presidential Park” with the giant president heads across the street from it too?
