The Tallahassee Mall

 
Posted by Picasa


I have always liked the logo and colors used by the Tallahassee Mall. This sign is located at their rear entrance. Every time I go in this mall, it seems like more stores have closed. I hope to see it start recovering one day, because this is the closest one to my house.

It's all about this crazy economy!But don't worry new stores will be open soon, I'm positive about this phase.
I also have a mall near my place, it's a big one, many stores change place there but what lead the mall is a big supermarket there, it is also good for me because I always can buy supplies in my way to home.

I don't know what is going to happen to the mall if they don't get an anchor store.....I will miss it for sure if it closes!

closing all over. I must admit, I hate the mall, and strip centers, and big box stores.....I really just dont like shopping.

Lois, I bet you can do some "damage" there with your credit card!

The white sign with the cute flower looks like it belongs there in Florida!

Our malls are suffering as well ... not just the big ones but the little strip malls as well. I hope things recover soon.

It's sad to see the small family run stores closing up. I went to a mall, a while back and the only businesses open were the two anchor stores.
The sign is very attractive.

Even before the economy tanked, malls were dying.

It IS a shame how many businesses are closing.

Nice sign Lois, but its a sad to see so many stores closing.
Enjoy your day...

PS, I'm going to start calling you 'the bird lady':)

It's a shame that the stores are closing. I hope things change soon. That is a nice well kept sign though.

Store closings are a sad commentary on our times. I must admit, however, that is some cases, I've seen new stores move into the vacated spaces rather quickly, which I take to be a good sign.

And I have a feeling that some of the mall stores, unique in concept, have been hanging on a shoestring for awhile...so it isn't surprising that they have bit the dust.

Let's hope, though, that better days are just around the corner. It took a long time for a bunch of miscreants to get us in this mess, and it's going to take a long time to fix it!

I've been to this mall, sad to hear about the stores closing. Our large malls aren't suffering, but we sure have alot of empty retail space in the strip malls. And they keep building more??? Thanks for stopping, the bang trim was definitely NOT on purpose. I didn't catch on fire or anything, more of a nice crinkly effect lol. Kathy

The economy has struck hard everywhere it seems. Small business, which I am all for supporting, has had it especially hard.

It is a nice sign - I like the sketchy field around the flower.
Our mall has converted the 3rd level into medical/office space. Several strip malls (Peninsula Center) have had several stores close - really sad to see covered up windows or empty spaces, but I noticed some new ones starting up... I wish them luck.

And I like the typeface.
I'm so sorry to hear that businesses are still having a hard time there. I really hope things get better soon.

The typeface is elegant and the pink color unusual and charming.

I like the lettering! It's sad when our favorite mall stores close.
