This was a very quiet mall, with not a lot going on it seems but it was still kind of interesting to visit. On the back of the mall, is a door that allows you access to an overhead walk looking down o... read more »
W\e were last here 9 years ago, and I thought it was a much busier place. Virtually no were to eat or shop. Very disappointing.
So I originally came to see the old "Scranton Welcomes You" sign and it took a while but I found it in the mall. The mall itself was very sad if I'm being honest. People were there but there just wasn... read more »
i used to work for eco trade which is the company that is doing all the renovations to the old stores. the owner of the mall john basalyga owns eco trade and does not offer affordable heath benefits vacation time or anything else other companies do. the foreman paul hrynak assaults his employees and is constantly doing drugs. he has been arrested by the cops many times for drugs and stealing. he steals materials from work sites and lies about his hours worked. i saw him punch a co worker in the face for making a mistake. the ppl that work in the mall like security dont get affordable benefits either and get paid even less then we do. before i quit eco tade i tried to talk to the mall manager joe because i was having an issue with paul harassing me for not taking drugs and he refused to listen to me. stay away from this place because its ran by corrupt people and dont care about anyone but themselves. i wish boscovs would have won the auction.
There is nothing left in this mall. I remember when it first opened.. It was a thriving shopping place. To date. It is nothing more then a ghost town. No one shops there. Not even during they holiday season. The good court is non exsistant. What happen to this mail? You travel a few miles up the expression way to Viewmont Mall the place is full of shoppers.. They are a couple more malls worst then this one. Have you visited Frackville and the Bloomsburg Mall. They may be worst then this one!
I went to shop at Boscovs last week and I parked in the garage. When I stepped out of my truck, I was confronted by a group of men with vests on who told me I wasn't allowed to park there. One of the men, who said he was the owner of Eco Trade, told me I parked in an "Eco Trade Parking Only" zone. I didn't see any signs posted and told him I would take it up with the new owner. He laughed and told me the new owner is his best friend and he was going to have my truck towed and issue me a Mall Citation. I left and went to Viewmont.
What used to be a thriving mall is turning slowly into a ghost town. The eatery has two restaurants left and the mall is sparsely populated. It has a beautiful attraction of the antique trains next-door and it should be a very popular place to come. Whoever's running the mall is running it into the ground
This is a nearly dead mall. Not sure what other malls are like in the area but I have to imagine there's better. Looked like only one anchor store. Tons of empty stores. Food court is a joke. Outdated and only two options. Mediocre pizza or subway. At 1230 today I was one of only 3 people eating lunch. There were more teens and pre teens roaming than actual shoppers. If you're an Office fan, go to the top floor near Boscovs (or whatever it's called) to see the "Scranton welcomes you" sign then get the hell out
