That Mall is sick and that Store is dead!

It’s Worse Now

Now I have known Brian at deadmalls.com for about six months now. Little did I know he had crappy photos of one of my dead malls; Coliseum Mall in Hampton, VA. I asked him if I could have them and he said yes.

Here is his story on why they look so bad:

I had a digital camera that crapped out . I couldn’t download the pics off the camera, so I took pics of them on the crappy display screen on the camera, then brought the camera back. It was a 1 MP camera from target I got on clearance for $16.

These are from May of 2002:

{this is Wards that isn’t there anymore, a Burlington Coat Factory is where Wards was, and the stores next to it are now Barnes and Noble and Steve and Barry’s}

{this is practically the only time that I’ve seen a “modern” Wards fixture in a dead mall. Most dead malls that had Wards were using the 70’s or 80’s signs until Wards went bankrupt. I also forgot about the ghetto painted palmtrees they had up when Wards closed}
