Hess’s Department Store Tablecloth On eBay

Filed under: dead chains — Anita @ 3:41 am


Hess’ was in the spot at Coliseum Mall that started with Smith & Welton, and Rice’s Nachmans. Then Hecht’s moved in, but by 1992, it was over and Proffitt’s moved in. Dillard’s bought Proffitt’s and stayed at the Coliseum Mall location until about 2003.

Oglethorpe Mall Snoopy (80's? 90's?)

I picked this up at the thrift store sometime in the mid 1990’s. Then I totally forgot about him for years. I found him earlier this week in a garbage bag with some other stuffed animals that was in the basement of our old house.

Oglethorpe Mall Snoopy (80's? 90's?)

This Snoopy with Christmas Tree … swimtrunks? I assume they’re swimtrunks since they have a tie….comes from Oglethorpe Mall in Savannah Georgia. I guess its sorta like the Macy*s Snoopy Giveaways, you spend a certain amount of money, you get a Snoopy for like $15 or something.

Hills, Newport News, VA

This is something I scanned way back in August, but I lost the main photo. I found it the other day on my dad’s computer where I do my scanning at. It is about how the Hills in Newport News will be redeveloped. According to the article this Hills closed in 2000, when the chain folded.
