Originating in Dallas, Sanger-Harris was a hugely successful department store...until it wasn't. It was bought out in the 80's but the distinct murals and arches that made up their stores were left behind and inhabited by other stores.
Recently, the news broke that the Valley View Mall location was scheduled for destruction. The mall itself is a shadow of what it used to be, seemingly choosing to go out with a whimper. The tear-down process of the iconic Sanger-Harris exterior began the other day and I went to check it out:
The rest of the mall is on its way out to. I took the opportunity to take a look around at what's left and snap some pics. Enjoy:
Time is running out for you to stop by and pay your respects before this little piece of Dallas history is gone forever.
