Build It And They Will Come! At least this is what Hooker Development hoped. Their supermall stretched for the length of four football fields and housed over two hundred store spaces. I visited FOREST FAIR MALL 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 three 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.
