mall and department store photography bordering on the obsessive.
Has Belk closed off their mall entrance permanantly or were they just closed at the time you were there? You can't help but feel sorry for this poor mall...
I actually wasn't there personally. A friend of mine took the picture. I would assume that they've closed the mall entrance, seeing as they're not getting a lot of traffic from the mall.
It very much looked like Belk has "permenantly" closed off their enterance to the rest of the mall. The side where the former Kmart used to be was the creepiest side of the mall, very dark and dungeon-like. The former Peebles are looked drab too. What's interesting were the places that were left - a gym, a 24-hour sweepstakes place, a chinese restaurant.
I need to check this place out again. It's been a long time. I don't remember any of the remaining businesses other than Belk.
