The Sunnyvale Town Center Mall or (the WAVE as they tried to rename it) is closing. We went in today and most of the non-chain stores were closing out and selling everything at half off in preparation for the Aug. 31 shutdown of the mall. The Target and Macys anchor stores will remain open.
I’m glad they’re finally putting that mall out of its misery. It’s always been weird going there when half the stores were closed. I’ve never seen a Carl’s Jr. or Cinnabon close, but they did in this mall. I hope it does get revitalized at some point; it sure is a convenient place for us to go shopping and there was a good Hallmark store in there at least. I know the city was never really happy it was there as it breaks up the Murphy street downtown area, but it would be great if something compelling were to end up there. Maybe it will drive more people to Murphy street which is a cute little one block stretch of shops and restaurants. It sure was happenning this morning for the weekly Farmer’s Market.
