Mountaineer Mall interior, Morgantown, WV

The Mountaineer Mall opened in 1975, anchored by JCPenney, Montgomery Ward, and Murphy's Mart. In spite of a botched '80s expansion (adding a fourth anchor, Stone & Thomas, and a line of stores with only exterior entrances), it fell on hard times in the '90s and is hanging by a thread today.

 

This corridor, facing the long-closed Montgomery Ward store, was the least lively part of the entire mall. Nearly all the storefronts from this point on were closed.
