Viewmont Mall


Welcome to the Viewmont Mall located in Dickson City, PA, which is just outside of Scranton. The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre region has three malls and this is the one that appears to be doing the best. 

The mall opened in 1968 with JCPenney, Sears and Macy's as it anchors. The only change in the lineup is that Sears closed in late 2015 or early 2016 and was replaced by Dick's Sporting Goods, Field & Stream and Homegoods. The mall also has junior anchors such as Ulta Beauty and Forever 21. The pictures I took come from 2015 while Sears was still present at the mall.

Former Super Kmart #4939

This post comes from Ohio, just outside the blog's coverage area.

The final Super Kmart that was left after the closings of all the others, closed its doors in April of this year. The Warren, OH store now sits empty waiting for its new occupant, which is fairly likely to be a Meijer, to come to the site. This was one store that I knew I had to visit before it closed, and I'm glad I was able to visit before it was closed forever. I would of liked to have visited during its liquidation, but traveling far distances in the winter months are not ideal in this part of the country.

Anyhow, here's a tour of the store while it was still in operation.
