Wow... I got a little sentimental, did some googling, and stumbled onto this blog. My mom (who passed away just before Christmas) was Art and Nancy's exec. secretary for several years. I worked at Sports Shack and Mall Liquors before moving to Florida in 1981.

I too enjoyed many "coming of age" times at the mall..

Having traveled back to the area over the years, it is sad to see how far the place has fallen.

My wife and I used to love this place. There was just something about it. The ambiance was great. Have not been to a mall that compares.
What a mall, I worked at Wild Pair Shoe Store for quite a few years. When Sangertown Mall was built I refused to go work over at that store.

OMG, Yes. The plates and utensils were heavy pewter and the guys work brown sackcloth robes tied with rope. My brother managed the restaurant and hired my boyfriend to wash dishes. This trip down memory lane is REAL!

Was around 10 or so when the mall was first built. Needless to say , spent a lot of time there right into the high school years. Remember going to see many movies there, one being the WARRIORS. They actually had a cop in the theater because of a fear that the movie would make kids fight !! Lol. It was a much better world back then when that movie was considered some kind of "risk" as compared to what is out there today. Anyway, had a lot of great times there..........
