    I remember some of my old favorites:

    Pantastik
    Foxmoor
    Ups And Downs
    Cavages
    Beefy's Burgers

    All were cool mall stores that I used to love during the 70's.

    What stores did you love, but no longer exist? :banana:

    I liked Paul Harris, but the one I remember is Merry-Go-Round. They had really funky clothing. I remember when I was seventeen, I bought this stretchy red glittery skirt. I wore it to a party one night, and I thought I was hot stuff, lol.

    I loved Paul Harris too!

    I was a fan of the old Express as well w/the Neon Colored Madonna wannabees clothes....LOL!


    Here's a quick question too....what was the name of the clothes stores for kids in the malls that had the regular doorway as well as the circular shag carpet doorway for the kids to go thru (like a tunnel)? I swore to someone that was the early version of Children's Place and they looked at me like I was crazy! TIA

    It definitely was the Children's Place. I used to love going there! They also had this clear TV type of plaything inside the store...

    We still have Deb and Spencers. No more Child World or 5-7-9 that I'm aware of.

    I used to love Spencers, but they went from trippy to junky. I rarely bother with them anymore. I used to love the way that store smelled in the 70's, like strawberry incense. :teeth:

    There are still Spencers left! There is one in the mall in Memphis, Wolfchase Galleria! Its still as much fun to go in and look as it was when I was a teenager!

    I also remember Merry Go Round! The loud music and the clingy clothes! I think I bought my first black leather mini skirt from there!

    Casual Corner I'm not sure - but Galleria still has Lerners - although it's not quite the same Lerners as it used to be - it's much more upscale now - in other words, alot more unaffordable. ;)
