Remember the North Kent Mall?
I do! Most of here in West Michigan do! It’s fair to say that with the changing economy, changing world and the opening of the Rivertown Crossings Mall – North Kent Mall’s fate was sealed.
I will say that I do Miss Montgomery Wards! It was like sears, but had a lot more furniture and fun stuff. Wards was one of the Anchor stores. Believe it or, the other long time anchor K-Mart is still there, even though the Mall really is no more… and it’s the last Kmart in the city (more or less).
Do you have any memories from North Kent? As mentioned, I liked Wards, and Radio Shack was handy. Waldenbooks was a favorite spot too – and let’s not forget the Arcade – Aladdin’s Castle!
