Linton Promenade Boca Raton News, August 7, 1985

I found this newspaper article last night, after using the newspaper for this entry over at my history blog. I tried googling info about this mall, but nothing was found. I assume through the years, offices absorbed the mall.

Here is the entire paper. The ads start around page 130-ish. 

I’m going to have some Christmas Cookies from Trader Joes while the images upload.

I used to think these were called "sing a long" lights

When I was little, I thought these were called Sing a Long Lights, and when you plugged them in, tinny sounding xmas music would emit from them.

Brooks Pharmacy, December 1, 1991 (pittsburgh press)

Look at all the exclamation perfume. I finally bought some last weekend at WalMart, they had the small bottles for $3.

Woolworth, December 1, 1991 Pittsburgh Press

This woolworth paper was specifically for mall locations in the area. Hence, the nicer merchandise, like the NES, SNES, and Game Boy. Pretty sure my Woolworth in Hampton, VA never had merchandise this nice. I do remember them selling Rollerblades at my location.

VCR Plus (12/1/1991

Did the VCR Plus really work? It seems so much easier and cheaper back then to learn how to use the timer record function.

I found this tonight while looking for something else on (sadly discontinued) Google Newspapers. This is from September 1, 1995.

Caldor Rainbow has more information about this place, and the futuristic looking itty bitty McDonalds inside.

I’m 30, so I totally missed the whole Kmart deli. The only good thing that came out of ours growing up was that they had little glass bottles of Tropicana Twister.

Some points;

  • The Bradlees in the picture is where JCPenney is today, and before that an Uptons.
  • The movie theater next to the food court that is mentioned is a Old Navy now.
  • Leggett opened in 1989, and later became a Dillards
