Willowbrook Mall

Wayne, New Jersey - 1973

The swinging and slightly gaudy (but-in-a-good-way) Willowbrook Mall interior in 19 and 73. If you grew up in the '70s and this kind of reminds you of your basement, too, raise your hand.

Well, here is something you dont see that often. Stores that are still there 33 years later! Lerner (now New York & Company) is still next to the card shop (a Hallmark now). I can confirm this on the GGP's leasing page:

Raising my hand as well.

Nice to know that Lerner is still around, as I was always fond of that chain. For some reason, they had the nicest display mannequins.

That looks like the Sears wing to me...I am pretty sure that Lerner (now NY & Co) is still in the same location after all those years. Great pics of Willowbrook...brings back a lot of memories.

I love seeing these Willobrook pictures! My boyfriend and I spend many a weekend there and it's nice to see that Lerner (NY & Co.) and the card shop (now a Hallmark) are stil there. There's also a nice flagstone wall near the Sears entrance (which is near NY & Co.) that has probably been there since the dawn of Willowbrook.

I worked for Prudential Ins. Co. in Wayne (Willowbrook branch)in the late 1970's and every Friday we would get pizza there and go shopping-Ohrbach's was my favorite store back then-I could actually afford clothes there...incidentally, most of Lucille Ball's wardrobe was courtesy of Ohrbach's!!

Here's one for you. I could swear that here was at one time an elevator in between two of the unrelated small stores in the Stern's (now Bloomingdale's) wing but I do not know which ones.

I worked there at Record Town in the 90's.

Oh my God...I had forgotten about the "Little Theater". I think the kiosk where I got my ears pierced was on the other side of that candy counter.
