So There's Only Like 100 Parking Spots Left

I remember this day, dad took me to LensCrafters to get new lenses. There was probably about 100 parking spots left at the main entrance?

Macys (Coliseum Mall)

Hecht’s had just received its Macy’s sign.

I miss this building so much. Macys closed in 2017, and was town down a short time later. There’s an Element motel and a Floor and Decor on the land now.

A comment I screened last night with inaccurate information about the Peninsula Town Center reminded me that I forgot to post these. I took these almost a month ago. I went to buy a pair of shoes at Sneakers in the Town Center and rolled by Macys to take two last shots:

The person who made the inaccurate comment thought that this was a brand new building, it’s not — It was built as a Thalhimers in the early 1970s.

I just read rhat First Watch, a brunch kind of place is planning on opening soon at the town center. Noodles and Co. is coming soon as well.

Macys at old Coliseum Mall Location to Close

Macys at the former Coliseum Mall

This didn’t surprise me at all. It’s an old location, the parking lot is never busy on Saturdays, and the store didn’t have a MAC counter.

I’ve never shopped in this Macys. I go to the one in Colonial Heights for the Calvin Klein plus size dress selection, or the one in Newport News for their MAC counter.

Macy’s plans to close three stores in Hampton Roads, including its store at Peninsula Town Center, by early spring, the company announced today.

The closure of the 173,000-square-foot store at Peninsula Town Center will affect 109 employees, according to a Wednesday news release.

The closure of stores at Military Circle Mall in Norfolk and Chesapeake Square in Chesapeake will affect 164 employees, according to the announcement.

Macy’s said it closed four stores last year and plans to close 36 more stores, including six in Virginia, over the next few months. Final clearance sales at those stores begin Jan. 11.

About 3,000 positions will be affected nationwide, the company reported.

Other stores closing in Virginia are: Virginia Center Commons in Glen Allen and the main store and furniture store in Regency Square in Richmond.

I’ve been to Regency Square a few times, their makeup department is upstairs which is strange. Several of my dreams have taken place up there.

Peninsula Town Center Infomation Pamphlet, 2007

Filed under: "coliseum mall" — Anita @ 5:12 pm

Wow, I accidentally hoarded this for years in my photobucket album. I got this in the mail some time in 2007, I think right after Coliseum mall was torn down. I’m trying to remember how I got my hands on it, I think I asked someone who was in charge of the transition process if the mall had their fixture sale yet, and of course in typical Anita fashion, I missed it. He offered to send me this though. There was some fantastic old photos of the mall in it:
