That Mall is sick and that Store is dead!

Boris Z’s Coliseum Mall Photos

{The original Coliseum Mall entry}

Starting last week, the old Dillards at Coliseum Mall was in the process of being torn down, and the Hechts sign was taken down and replaced with a Macys sign. After Christmas, parts of the mall will be torn down and the Pennsula Town Center will be in the process of being built. The only building that will remain will be the Hechts/Macys…but I still think that Hechts/Macys will have a new building.

Here are Boris’ photos:

1 – Dillards being town down.

2 – Dillards being town down.

3 – The old Food Court (“Food Place”) entrance.

4 – The new Macy’s sign on the Hechts. Honestly? Looks a lot nicer than the old (probably rusty!) Hechts sign.

5 – The always sad, “Yes! We’re still open!” sign. That makes me sad. Coliseum Mall’s sign will always be stuck in 1990.

6 – The new Macys entrace sign. Looks nice.

7 – Another tear down photo of Dillards.

Boris also has a photo album on Flickr if you want to add comments to his photos.



  1. I can’t believe that this mall has finally seen its last days!

  2. Only went there once, but it seemed pretty busy if not terribly big or fancy…a good regional mall. Sorry to see its demise.

  3. Well, it actually used to be “fancy”. Not real fancy, but it had the stores that catered to most people. I don’t think Wards closing really killed the mall, I think when Dillards closed in 2003 was the real death knell to the mall. I think Burlington and Steve and Barry’s moving in didn’t help matters either. Maybe the companies who had stores in the mall thought that putting Burlington would make the mall look low class or something.
