RIP These Mall Stores

My dream is to open a mall/museum that has all of these stores, plus an old-school Showbiz Pizza.

1. SUNCOAST

At one point, we had had whole stores for videos.

2. KIDS ‘R’ US

Toys ‘ R Us, Babies ‘R Us, why not?

3. SAM GOODY

Goody Got It! Then Goody Lost it!

4. STRUCTURE

Besides The Buckle, this was the only place for dudes to get clothes.

5. KB TOYS

I swear, Mom, the toys at KB are DIFFERENT than the ones at Toys ‘R Us!!

6. CONTEMPO CASUALS

Contempo actually changed its name and lives on today as Wet Seal. Contempo Seal would have been better for everyone, I think.

7. HILLS

The Hills are alive! With the sound- sorry, we’re closing. You’re all fired and we’re closing. I’m so sorry.

8. SHOWBIZ PIZZA

This one kind of doesn’t count, because Showbiz just turned into Chuck E. Cheese’s. I worked at CEC all through high school and our paychecks still said Showbiz Pizza and that’s just a thing that doesn’t matter but that you know now.

9. HIGBEES

Cleveland’s own. I believe this is now the temporary home of Cleveland’s new Horseshoe Casino, so same diff.

10. CLOTHESTIME

These might still be open. They just look like they’ve been closed since 1995.

11. AMES

We Ame to please!

12. GOLD CIRCLE

Started as a store, now finding second life as a giant bike lock?
