Merchandising meccas and other commercial curiosities. Our exhibits range from the early 20th to early 21st centuries.
In 1999, a massive, "Bigger Than Life", mall makeover began. Land to the west was cleared and Fashion Center Drive, the shopping center's western boundary, was removed. By April 2001 (the date of this photo) a new parking garage had been completed and construction was underway on a westward mall expansion.
