I’m in absolute love with this person’s Flickr album of stores from the late 90s and early 2000s. Most of these are from the Staten Island area of New York.

Wasn’t The Wall the most overpriced store of our childhood?

River View Plaza, Norwalk, CT (1995)

Screen shot 2014-05-31 at 10.53.03 PM

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.

Last year, The Onion AV Club did a week devoted to writing about mall references in various forms of media.

I just ran across this because I read the “My Year of Flops” entry on the movie “Scenes From a Mall”

The world changed on September 11, 2001. So did the corporate world’s desire to communicate directly to the public. This gallery documents the groundbreaking use of corporate homepages as a direct outlet for the people and emotion behind the brands.

I found this on my friend Sarah’s twitter, she said to make sure to check out the Hormel one:

I forgot that the Spam musejm was supposed to open near 9/11.

Also, the Spam museum is in an old Kmart.
