Inspired by Jerry Skids from Mouse Rants. Drat! That’s the third one this week. I buy fuses by the case. (Lights outside the windows go dark.) Uh oh. And I’ve blown the whole neighborhood again!

It was More than a Mall. Summit Park Mall was an enclosed shopping mall that opened in 1972 with the original anchor stores being Sears, AM&A's, Hens & Kelly and Jenss. Hens & Kelly moved out in 1982 and remained vacant until 1992 when Macy's opened its first closeout store in the space. The Macy's closeout store closed in 1995 and was never replaced by another anchor. By the late 1990s, the mall was 40% vacant. Jenss closed in 1998. By 2004 the mall was 65% vacant. In 2009, the mall's owners announced that the mall would close following the company's filing for bankruptcy, however the mall was allowed to stay open after the court decided to extend the deadline for closure. By 2009, the only stores in operation were Sears, The Bon-Ton and Save-A-Lot. As of September 2017, Save-A-Lot closed permanently, leaving only Sears and The Bon-Ton still open.
