Worcester outlet malls and factory stores
Jenni March 25th, at 2: That is how I feel about the Galleria closing. I grew up in this mall!!! Oh my…if anyone else can remember any other store names that would be great.
July 18th, at 9: September 13th, at 9: Chris April 29th, at 8: You can catch them on my website for now! MIKE May 27th, at 3: I found that though the mall was well managed and always spotless.
It was also much safer than most thought. The population could have supported this Mall, even with Wrentham. Best of luck CitySquare!!! Joe Murrell September 7th, at I grew up with the old Worcester Center especially living on Hacker st. With only a short walk I would be there. This was the only shopping Mall with two Papa Ginos and entertainment from open until beyond close with the Dream Machine arcade, Theatre, and Dance Club.
My Father had even taken oil painting here. I had visited now I am Florida in about and was kind of surprised to see a modern day ghost shopping center. I believe this is also partially due to the new mall opening as well. It is very unfortunate seeing this beautiful building that once housed so many businesses and memories especially for us that grew up going here on an almost daily basis.
I would get dropped off at the old Ionic av Boys club and skip off to the Center. Worcester was definately an industrial city. My family members had worked for Rexnord chain belt wich is now closed , Crompton and Knowles wich is now closed as well , Polar soda, and so on.
For me there is so much history here but as with anything change is inevitable. If anyone has any old pictures of the inside and or outside please feel free to e-mail me at mandmgarageproductions yahoo.
If you have taken the time to read this thanks! Fred October 3rd, at 3: Lived in Springfield and went to school in Boston. I worked in Worcester and Littleton for a while. I also used to go to the GreenDale mall a bit when I worked in Litt;eton — is that still around? Peter October 13th, at 1: Peter, i think that the greendale mall is suffering the same fate but the auburn mall is thriving. July 25th, at 1: Jonah Norason November 29th, at 5: Caldor November 30th, at Saks Off Fifth Avenue?
I forget which was the other one in there. Redevelopment plans for this mall have stalled so nothing has really been done to it since I posted this two years ago. Galleria Mallrat December 9th, at 3: I used to work in this mall during its days as the Galleria, and used to hang out there all the time.
It was then replaced by the VF Factory Outlet which was -not- a fantasic place to shop! These are posted these at his website online: Galleria Mallrat, i use to work in filenes basement from to the mall was always busy then!!
I use to love how the 1st floor o the jordan marsh store looked as you would walk in. The common outlets were ok loved donna karen but the galleria was much better!!
Todd January 1st, at 3: In September of Bruce played a couple shows at the Centrum, which is located across the street. I scored tickets and on the day of the show, picked up my girlfriend at Assumption College around 4: We wanted to really make a day of it….
We parked on the other side of Main Street, halfway up the hill, at this little lot that I knew wherein I never had a problem parking for hours at a time, free of charge. Walking through the Common towards the Galleria, I spied Roy and Max sitting on a bench, shooting the breeze.
I remember that Roy was drinking an orange soda. We scrambled out of our booth and introduced ourselves and shook their hands and had a minute of pleasantries exchanged.
So then we told them about me spotting them in the Common and verifying identities at the record store. I remember the mall was almost completely empty this was on a weekday during the day, so not surprising and I thought it was so cool we were standing there shooting the breeze with a couple of almost-celebs.
We finished our meal and did some shopping, and then they acknowledged us again as we passed on the escalator an hour later. I killed time at Media Play until the time of my appointment, then went upstairs and got killed in penalties, late fees and interest. Ah, such warm memories of Worcester Center Mall. Caldor April 2nd, at 9: And two and a half years later, it appears the mall is finally going to be demolished: Theresa April 3rd, at 8: We have some really great buildings here.
I remember that night club in the lower level. There was a restaurant called Plums. My friend George was the manager of an arcade there and my brother worked at the movie theatre. They made him rinse the brains of an unfortunate public inebriate, who fell off that high concrete wall by the stairs, off the side walk and he was only sixteen. What a crazy place. I did learn to disco at that club when the drinking age was still eighteen.
Anon April 10th, at 7: There was an elderly homeless man who lived in the old Jordon Marsh space. He was a junkie too. We being security found Polaroids of him and some other younger homeless man having sex, and some spoons and heroine needles and such. Galleria Mall Rat June 18th, at When the mall originally opened up, the nightclub space was originally a restaurant. I think it was a steakhouse of some sort J. Dinner and a Movie — all in the basement!: Justin July 17th, at 1: This mall used to an a kindergarthern center in the basement and a rare central mass outpost of ubonpain.
March 20th, at 8: We had a beautiful playground and shared our main lobby with the glass elevator I had taken as a child to see a movie with my grandmother as a child! Jim October 24th, at 1: This would have been around or Sorcie November 11th, at 9: Riverledge March 28th, at The Galleria was a great place to shop. Students with valid college ID could park at the attached garage for free or almost free.
Great deal for us back then, I guess not so great for the City of Worcester as an income source. Georgef April 9th, at 6: I go to the Dead Galleria every once in awhile.
There were no signs stating it could not be used two others, did, so I let them be , and recorded a 2-lap trip. It was the best. While down there, I found the basement entry to the Flagship Bank Building, and rode a couple of their modernized Otis elevators, one was getting a bit death-trappy noisy and shaky.
I could not find the way into the Bank of America Building from down there rode a couple Otii there as well another time.
It houses government offices, a college satellite office, the YMCA, and such. Rode it as well. The escalators still work, but are turned off on weekends. Worcesteria July 13th, at 5: Also regrettable, at that time, was the demolition and levelling of historic Worcester Common — a miniature version of Boston Common adorned with monuments, venerable old tombstones, and a rolling carpet of grass — in favor of a barren, sun-scorched, concrete-framed reflecting pool left with nothing worth reflecting, I might add.
What probably contributed, greatly, to its crime-ridden reputation, was the word-of-mouth that circulated amongst wary suburbanites, in Paxton and beyond, when local architect and prominent citizen Armand Casavant, now deceased, was jumped and savagely beaten near his parked car. In fact, I doubt there was any meaningful security patrolling the bowels of those catacombs; the unattended walkways, linking each parking level to the mall structure, were constant invitations to bodily harm.
Management, however, appeared to have been more concerned with the vital business of policing fare-collection at the vehicle exits. What a loss to the present residents and the guests of the city. I grew up in Worcester My early days as a youth were spent at Worcester Center.
No matter how much the current realestate mongules want us to believe what they are doing to the Worcester center is best for the City You have to wonder how many of them actually live in Worcester let alone work there. I have to wonder of all the jobs lost Thanks to Murray whos plans were far more than to help the city prosper.
Jordan Levy was a noble guy he needs to run for Gov of Mass we need his voice on the hill. Anyhow lets look at what has become of Worcester. What was once known as the manufacturing capitol of the state of mass and actually most of the Entire nation.
Now is reguarded as a city over plagued by Aids and many other venerial diseases. They dont want to assist the small businesses cause they get their funding from Wal mart. White N Bagley One of my first real jobs as an adult. Then there was McGoverns on Millbury St. So many chances then to make a go of life. NOW not so much. Maybe the biggest flaw of the Worcester center that we can learn from is that they didnt showcase any businesses from worcester its self other than PineCroft.
Maybe if they had Worcester made merchandise in the store the economy might have made them stronger also. Worcman May 8th, at 1: Worcester Center Mall would have been a great site to rehab it for the new Worcester Court House is stead of a parcel on main street that is small. Someone got paid off big time to lobby to put the new Court House where it is. It does not even have a law library in it. It costs the taxpayers more money for the state to rent across the street for space to put the library in it.
Having the court house at the Galleria would have been great. It was so big that they could have had a nice big food court like before, a law library and lots of room to put lots of court rooms in there. This center has 54 outlet stores.
