WOW. memories!yes--after sitting vacant for years, the former Mays site in Fishkill is being converted into a Home Depot as we speak.i'd been there for the indoor flea market as recently as 2 years ago... and it was kind of creepy, because you could still see remants of Mays on the walls... peeling signs that said Juniors Dresses" or whatever. Thanks for sharing this!
i thought that was the dutchess mall! i feel good now.i haven't been over that way in years. you should try to look up the apollo plaza in monticello, the orange plaza in middletown (my childhood mall until the galleria came and ruined everything), and the south hills mall in poughkeepsie.
I don't care how low the prices are, the clothes are still ugly. I wouldn't have been caught dead in that suit and blazer combo at that age.
If you want to see a GOOD commercial, I think I nearly wet myself on this one!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kov_pZ4MgE8I only wish they still had this logo up on the place (even if they don't sell toys anymore inside)!
That toy commercial sure brought back memories.

That toy commercial sure brought back memories.The main Pennys location in my town (Franklin Park) was still like this in the early 80s I think (other locations were smaller and we used to had one much closer at Miracle Mile Shopping Center).My Pennys used to also had a restaurant near one of it's entrances, but it was converted to a beauty salon sometime in the mid-late 80's and it's been that way since (guess it's still doing good).
Interesting that you saw remnants of Mays at the Flea Market, because it was not in the former Mays store.The Flea Market was where Service Merchandise was, but Mays was at the opposite end of the mall, and was most recently Jamesway.As an update, Home Depot is now open, and last I heard (haven't been down there in a while), asbestos was being removed from the Service Merchandise space in preparation for tearing that building down (the mall was torn down except the anchor spaces, and Home Depot was built between the two).
