I was on break this week so I stopped by the Virginia Center Commons mall near Glen Allen, Virginia. According to the local news station, the mall will be closing at the end of October. Honest time though, it’s not that heartbreaking. All the anchors except for the American Family Fitness gym and (ick) Burlington moved out years ago–the closed ones are torn down except for the JCPenney. Foot Locker was moving out when I was there. I’m trying my best to remember but I really think Bath & Body Works, Jimmy Jazz, and Burlington were the only stores operating that morning.

From the appearance of the food court there looked like there may be 2 places that still operate, but maybe they were not operating on a Tuesday morning.

I totally would’ve tried this place if it was open.

Wikipedia states that this mall opened in 1991, and I think these tables and chairs can attest to that. Looks like at one point there may of been a fro yo place.

The vending machine was almost empty and turned off.

The Burlington used to be a Proffit’s, then a Dillard’s.

This white wall was either the Sears or the Macys entrance. They’re both gone now. I wonder if that store was a Things Remembered at one point.

This is inside the old Penney’s building.
