All I Can Think Of Are Zombies! Super Creepy Surreal Pictures Of America’s Abandoned Malls.

0 1595

I thought with all these crazy shoppers, there would never be an abandoned mall, but I guess the economic decline is so irresistible that it has sped up the “going out of business” process. I only wish they had a big sale before they went out of business.

Now what you are about to see is some creepy malls that had been abandoned throughout the country, they could be terrifying and to be honest, some of them freak the hell out of me, all I can think of is that there might be a zombie popping up! God bless me! But hey, these may be the est place to shoot some SCARY movies! ( Via: BuzzFeed )

Cloverleaf Mall: Chesterfield, Va.

The Cloveleaf Mall opened in 1972 with 40 shops anchored by J.C. Penney and Sears. The mall was a popular hangout for families in the ’70s and ’80s, but according to the Chesterfield Observer, “That all changed in the 1990s. Cloverleaf’s best customers, women, began staying away from the mall, fearful of the youth who were beginning to congregate there. People started seeing kids with huge baggy pants and chains hanging off their belts, and people were intimidated, and they would say there were gangs.” Stores stopped renewing their leases and in 2007 it closed permanently.

Crestwood Mall: St. Louis

Crestwood Mall opened in 1956 and stayed open for more than 55 years. At one point, it had over 90 stores and 4 anchor stores. According to St. Louis Today, “Like many longtime indoor malls across the country, it is changing because of age, location, new ways of shopping, and increased competition from newer shopping centers and the Internet.” The mall was also inconvenient to get to because it wasn’t close to an interstate exit. In 2013, the mall was put up for sale, and if sold, will most likely be razed.
