That Mall is sick and that Store is dead!

I Didn’t Whoop Their Butt In Bingo

Filed under: newmarket fair mall — Anita @ 7:13 am

I tried going to bed early for the first time since we moved in here last month, and I could not. I climbed in bed at 10:45, didn’t fall asleep until 12, and was up at 2:40.

Not Another Day At Newmarket!!

Since I’m up, all of a sudden I got this warm and fuzzy memory of sitting on one of the straight out of 1990 black metal benches (see photo) Newmarket Fair Mall had (and still have for the Netcenter employees). It was the Summer of 1994, and I was sitting there with my mom in front of the Baskin Robbins and we were drinking those coffee ice cream drinks (I forgot the name of them, the only Baskin Robbins out here now is the one in Col. Wiliamsburg). The mall was pretty much dead at that point, probably only had 20 tentants left in it. We had probably finished shopping at Sears for a fan or a purse for mom or something.

I also remember for a few weeks that Summer mom and I would go there in the mornings to the upstairs (dead since 1992!) Food Court to play Bingo with the old folks. That was when the carousel was still in the mall on the second level, right next to the Food Court. I think by then Sabarro was the only tenant left in the food court.

I don’t think that Baskin Robbins saw the Summer of 1995.
