And an Amazon center will be going there. Damn times have changed.
Yes, ripping off the product, and forcing the seller to divulge their supply chain through spurious counterfeit claims. Only the bigger retailers like Williams Sonoma have to pockets to call BS, legally, on them. The little guys are gut shot.
That was the place to be, even a few years after the Galleria opened. Here's a video about Century Plaza one of my high school friends posted about Century Plaza last year. Talk about a trip down Nostalgia Lane!
Same here. Remember the Circuit City across the street near the O'Charley's?
I vaguely remember I think. Most of my early mall memories are of Brookwood mall, but both my grandmothers would take me to Century Plaza because they liked to shop there. I remember them building the Galleria and how excited everyone was about, like Birmingham was getting clean drinking water or something. It caught fire one day and delayed the construction/opening date. When it finally opened though, young me thought it was pretty bad ass. The Putt-Putt was no longer, THE place to go. eheh
This is a cool video. I ran across it a few months ago when I went down an "abandoned B'ham" YouTube rabbit hole. Would have been a cool spot to shoot an old 80's movie or something like Stranger Things (which I've only seen 2 episodes of).
You're spot on here except for Brookwood Mall. Next week, that place will be as barren as it was last month. I grew up in Center Point, so going to Century Plaza and occasionally Eastwood Mall was the norm. Like you expressed, a trip to Brookwood was a different experience in the late 70s and early 80s. (I loved Ferrells!) Now...The Summit has taken a TON of business away from Brookwood Mall. That's a real shame too.
