Dead Euclid is now Euclid Evolution

It's... Complicated...

I have a love/hate relationship with the name and URL of this blog.

I started it nine years ago with a different state of mind. My intentions were never malicious, but maybe my frustrations, the same I still have when it comes to hulking empty malls, just needed an outlet.

Euclid Square Mall is defunct, dead, done-zo, toast. But "Dead" Euclid isn't really a fair thing to call an entire city.

So what do I do? Rename? Change my URL? I enjoy writing about local history and digging through stuff more than anything else. And pictures, of course. I'd like to get back to pictures.

So this was a thing: Euclid Square News

Here's an edition of "Euclid Square News" from September 8th, 1983.

Inside it has advertisements of stores in the mall (The Craft Showcase, Doctor Pet Center, So~Fro Fabrics, Fun n Games, Susie's Casuals, Father & Son, Winkelman's, Stride Rite Bootery, Kay Bee Toys, Chess King, Kinney, World Bazaar, Bermans, Musicland, DOC Optical, GNC, Zondervan Family Bookstores, Rogers Jewlers, Foxmoor, Hit or Miss, Koening Sporting Goods, Regal Shoes, Merry Go Round,  J. Riggings, Broadview Savings, Continental Federal Savings, Bakers, Frederick's of Hollywood, Jeans West, Thom McAn, Gift Garden, Small Stuff, Things Remembered, American Girl, Dunkin Jewelers, CVS, the Diamond Company, Faflik Shoes, Guys n Gals, the Gap, Homemaker Shops, Flowerama, American Dental Centers, My Fair Lady)

A restaurant guide (Bresler's, Beef Corral, Burger King, Carousel Snack Bar, Frontier Fruit & Nut Co,, Helen Hutchley's, Hickory Farms, Higbee's Atrium Restaurant, Hough Bakeries, Karmelkorn Shoppe, May Company's Three Crowns, Orange Julius, Red Lobster, York Steakhouse)

And some upcoming events.  If you're a mall nostalgic like myself, download and enjoy your trip back into retail nirvana.
