Holladay Utah Shopping
We recently discovered a few photos of the old, demolished Cottonwood Mall in Salt Lake City, and they will no doubt bring back a flood of memories. We hope that you will remember the time of the COTTONWOOD Mall in the 1960s and share your memories with us.
We are grateful to anyone who provides us with information as a source to complete our article on COTTONWOOD MALL. We are also on a new OW called Salt Lake Insider, which can be found on YouTube and Facebook and is offered on our website and on the website of our sister site Holiday Shopping Utah.
We are part of a regional network that is currently carrying out a feasibility study for cycling and building a new cycle route. We plan to work with the owners of the large irrigation canal to provide a walkway along the canal through the green space of our business district.
Of course, there's no doubt that walking to the mall is the fitness craze, and while shopping at the Fashion Place Mall, I grabbed a hand - handmade, local - beer from Red Rock's Fashion Place. I remember grabbing some at the Courtyard Food Court, then going a dozen yards or so to Tilt and spending the next hour or two collecting as many arcade playing cards as possible.
I was also allowed to attend some fashion shows at the mall and ride in the float it mounted in the Day of the 47 parade. Something I remember is being in a shopping mall that groups can rent for dances in the evenings and Saturdays. My cohort and I rounded the length of this mall and picked up exhausted shoppers who had too many shopping bags to carry to ZCMI, where we ended up parked. I remembered going to the school that let me into Olympus Jr. High School and roaming the halls for the rest of my afternoon, let's call it what it was.
I think there was still a store, but I moved to work at J.C. Penney when the owner let the store go bankrupt. I didn't have enough money to shop there, and the area wasn't good enough to keep the shops there for long. The makeoffs were very exclusive and housed some of the most expensive clothing and accessories in the state of Utah at the time, as well as a few other stores.
Inside the northern shopping centre, just before heading to Albertson's, there was a snack bar selling spudnuts. I went south to a small entrance to the mall and introduced myself to a savings and loan business, Western Savings and Loan, which was Zions Bank at the time. My family soon built a house in the area and began taming the land, which was west of the Wasatch Range rich in springponds, grasses and wildflowers.
By the early 2000s, the vacancy rate in the mall had started to be quite high; in 2004 it was around 25 percent. In 2007, Holladay City announced that it would demolish it and build a new building in its place, which was to be demolished in mid-2008. Diane Young, who said she and her husband worked at the Cotonwood mall, pointed to a car parked across the street while it was open, and she pointed it out to me.
I could buy enough groceries to survive until my next payday at Albertson's, and I bought a wedding ring in the shopping centre in Zales. There was a restaurant called Hot Shoppes so I could spend $75 at the mall money in that store. However, I was taking part in a raffle at a shopping centre and was notified the day before Easter that I had won a $100 gift card to Fernwood Mall for a free Easter basket. As a result, we got new Easter baskets from Fernwood's sweets and ice cream shop and we bought our wedding rings from Zale's in the malls.
For many years there was a cinema in the Mall until it closed in 2002 and the dance club closed, and then it closed for a few years before reopening in 2008. While the shopping centre has seen better days, the site is being transformed into a dynamic city centre and plans are being drawn up for demolition, apart from the anchor shop. The shops have changed a lot over time, but at the beginning there seemed to be a good mix of shops, restaurants, shops and restaurants in this shopping center.
Cottonwood Mall's project will create more than 2,500 jobs for the community and bring housing, economic and environmental benefits. Peterson called the site of the now-defunct mall "one of Utah's most important economic development opportunities" and said there would be significant economic impacts on the city and its residents. He said: "When our city was incorporated, studies said the shopping centre was important to our financial viability.
