Just heard two guys on the elevator a little while ago explaining to each other how they were fairly 100 percent certain that the ever-defuncting Valley View Mall in North Dallas likely will be closed by Spring of '09. How do they know?
Apparently there's an upcoming book fair that normally is held or would be held at Valley View and has been done so for many years. It's moving. Has there been an announcement to this affect? I don't think so. All I could find was this story from March in The Dallas Morning News about how they were going to have a chance to reinvigorate the mall after Macy's pulled out. Maybe not. We shall see in a few months.
Personally, I don't go into this mall, and haven't in a good while. But there used to be this cool, cool store where they had life-size wooden figurines for sale. Always wanted to get this Cowboy sitting out next to a cactus. Oh well. It was $400 bucks anyways. Kari would never have gone for it.
