Filed under: dead stores,franklin — Anita @ 12:12 am

The last time we visited Winn Dixie was May of 2005

I had to turn my car around somewhere and I figured what the heck and I turned it around in the vacant Winn Dixie parking lot and took some pics from my car:

I took this pic during the fall of 2002 I believe. I think Krispy Creme was planning on tearing this one down and rebuilding it. Last I saw it was in 2005, and it was still up. I think plans fell through for redoing it.

I was at the Commissary at Langley Air Force Base in Hampton, VA in 2003, and this girl who was in the DECA program for her high school had to dress like a Keebler elf and pass out samples of cookies. Her DECA teacher wanted to take a pic, and I asked if I could too. I saw the girl an hour later and she told me “This is what I look like without the costume!”

The Commissary is alive and well, this is just a picture of the interior.

A blimp I saw flying around Jefferson Ave area of Newport News, VA. I caught a good pic of it as I was getting out of my car at Target–this Target is alive and well. Just a storefront picture for the archives.

Popes Market in Wakefield, VA. This building as always been shuttered since we moved to Wakefield in 2000. There used to be a Pepsi mural pained on the side of the building, but it was pained over a few weeks ago.

When I worked at a courtesy clerk at The Fresh Market, I was carrying out a couple’s grocery cart, and some reason I told them I lived in Wakefield and they started to tell me about the market they owned : Pope’s Market. I told them that the store was pracically in my backyard, and they instantly knew where I lived.

This was from the 2nd time I went to Alaska in 1996. This was my 13th birhtday.

I don’t know how Diamond Center Mall is doing. This mall is freakin’ huge. It has an ice rink, several floors of office buildings, and it had a Hello Kitty store!

I looked it up on the mall’s website and the store is no longer open.
