East Hills Shopping Center
Orem, Utah(?) - circa 1970s
I was told this postcard depicts the East Hills Shopping Center in "Orem, UT", but I can't find any reference or shred of evidence online, showing it ever existed there. The main one that turns up in all my searches is a mall by the same name in St. Joseph, Missouri, no mentions anywhere of one in Orem. Weird. I wonder if the person I got this from is mistaken about that. But I'll go with this information till I hear otherwise.
So does anyone out there know for sure if there ever was (is?) an East Hills Shopping Center in Orem, Utah, at least into the 1970s (or before)? If so, then there certainly doesn't appear to be much info about it online. Consequently, I have nothing to list below for its history. If it turns out to be the mall in Missouri, I'll update this post with that mall's reference information later.
At any rate, it's still a dang cool shot we have here of the Montgomery Ward anchor, and a Safeway, just barely visible on the far left (see the tell-tale logo?). As well, I like the swanky interior shot, too. Cool looking mall! Just need to know exactly where it is now. :)
