Sounds familiar doesn't it? You'll recall a similar situation I previously posted about with Meadville's Downtown Mall. The biggest difference between the two is that while Big Lots is a national chain, Tops (a regional supermarket) is not. Also, Tops is not connected to the mall. There is also a lot more vacancies here.
The mall opened in the early 1970s. And it feels like it has never been updated since. The mall shape is pretty much a L-shaped corridor with two entrances at both ends of the long side of the L. There is also an entrance in the middle of the mall that leads directly into the corridor. There is also a plaza that is connected to the building, but does not have mall access.
|You can see the gap in between the buildings here. This is the area that leads directly into the middle of the mall corridor.|
|Most Tops locations of this size would of have two entrances, one on each side of the jut out area. The left side entrance here was bricked in likely when this Tops location became a Martin's prototype store for a bit.|
|This is looking down the short section of the L-shape.|

|Rite Aid serves as the secondary anchor.|
|Nice little touch of history on the wall.|
