Yes it was called "Shiny Star"! My favorite was the bunny, My Melody. To this day I think it's the cutest thing, cuter than Hello Kitty.:) That was my favorite store as a little girl.

I've been on this site for an hour because my brother texted me today asking what the name of the Chicken Place was in Sangertown, right by the Friendly's and near the Chinese restaurant. The older man ran it, he worked every day, seven days a week...I've found almost every restaurant ever in Sangertown except this one...anyone remember? It's driving me nuts!

I have really enjoyed reading through all these posts. Such great memories of Sangertown Mall in its hey day. I can only recall Sangertown from about 1994 on (I was 11 then). I distinctly remember Arbys, Pizza Hut Express, Hemstroughts, Cinnabon, the one movie theater that did NOT have the roller skating rink, Bradlees, B Dalton and Walden Books, Tops n Bottoms, Bosco the talking parrot from the shoe store, the Pet Store, K B Toys, Kleins, Champs, The Wall (no one mentioned that one, used to be where FYE is now next to Sears), McDonalds, Taco Bell, Ruby Tuesdays, the 'pit'/depressed area with the steps that used to be down in the food court (which they filled in and put all those kiosks there now; maybe people were falling down its steps?), and the fountain that used to be right near it (I think there was a fountain right there??), and the Cyberstation arcade..

I lived in Texas from 1986-1994 before moving back to Utica in the summer of '94, so reading about all of the places that were in Sangertown during that time frame (Woolworths, O'tooles, Margaritas, Chuck E Cheese) is so funny! Oh well, even if I was living in Utica during those years, I wouldnt have remembered them anyways hahaha..well, at least the stuff from the 80s..I am a HUGE nostalgia nut, so this forum has been SO AWESOME to read through!! Well, minus some of the disagreements.

I really hope that they can breathe a little more life back in to Sangertown and bring it back up to what it was back in the 80s, 90s...I just don't want it to suffer the same fate as Riverside. For now, I'll take that we still have it, no matter how good or bad it is :) And I hope the area always has it.

I forgot to mention Kaufmanns, some candy store that was there in the late 90s I think down in the Macy's wing somewhere, and a sports card shop (it was down near where Bath and Body Works is now), and Nancy's Coffee Shop. And damn, Radio Shack has been there for FOREVER next to Pennys!
