RIP These Mall Stores

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

CONTEMPO CASUALS

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

HILLS

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

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.

HIGBEES

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

CLOTHESTIME

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