Build It And They Will Come! At least this is what Hooker Development hoped. Their supermall stretched for the length of 4 football fields and housed over 200 store spaces. I visited FOREST FAIR soon after its 1989 grand opening. I was astounded by its sheer size and the opulence of its toney West Wing. It was also novel how the complex was divided into 3 distinct areas. The East Wing even had shopping carts that you could take from store to store. I had NEVER seen anything like this. I haven't since.
