Linked in/Neat stuff: Gettysburg Address quiz/Remembering Sears Roebuck
At 25 (can you believe it?) and facing competition of all sorts, the York Galleria continues to change, as this thoughtful York, Pa., Daily Record/Sunday News story indicates. It faces competition from power shopping centers and online shopping. Still it provides a shopping experience without rival in the York area, with the West Manchester Mall in the process of demalling. As the line dancing photo above shows, you also can do a lot in a mall other than shopping . Also of interest: From top dog and hot dogs to dogfight and dog days in York County, Pa..
The York Mall, the York-area first covered shopping center, demalled long ago, when Wal-Mart moved there in the early 1990s. Interesting, the Galleria’s presence caused the indoor shopping action to move across Springettsbury Township, contributing to the York Mall’s demise as a covered mall. Now the Galleria is facing challenges from changes in customer shopping habits. Still, the Galleria remains a fun place to hang out. Here, preparations are underway for a meeting in the Galleria’s main court.

He’s done well but, as usual with such pursuits, it gets harder as you go. He’s now stumped.
