Belks looks great, Crown!!!!


I wish we still had still store's in my mall that decorated. Heck, I wish we still had stores in my mall. It's about 70% empty now. It's kind of sad.

The contrast between Belks and Macys within the same mall is striking.

Beautiful, festive displays and a real nice Christmas merchandise section in Belks while Macy's has a tucked-away-near-the-wall Christmas area that looks like an afterthought and such paltry decorations I didn't find them worth photographing.

I'll have to take back what I said about Macys.
I had been on the upper level where there were few signs of decoration.
Went through the lower level today and things were MUCH more festive.

Will have to take some photos next week!

Hey!! Santa arrived at Crabtree Valley Mall Saturday!
Got some photos this morning and will be adding in the near future along with some more mall decorations.
