Back in the saddle

Vacation’s over and I’m back in town. I think I took a million pictures over the two weeks I was gone! I had a BLAST but being gone two weeks means that there’s a lot of “catch up” to play when you get back. I’m also exhausted after doing so much traveling & sightseeing. You’re probably wondering, “This affects the blog HOW?” Well, I...

Vacation!

My much-anticipated summer vacation has arrived! I’ll be gone for the next two weeks. But fear not, faithful blog readers!

I’ll be a little slow...

May 3, 2012

Hi guys. Yeah, it’s me, your DumpyStripMalls blogger. I’m *thinking* about giving this blog another go. Key word…THINKING. What happened? Well…life. I was laid off from my job in 2010 and did not find another job for an entire YEAR. Yeah, laid off for a year and couldn’t find time to update this blog — dumb excuse!

10 Stores I Wish Were Still Around

In the spirit of my previous post – 10 Mall Chains I Can’t Believe Are Still in Business - I present to you the top 10 stores I wish were still in business. Not saying that I would actually shop at these places nowadays. There’s a reason these places aren’t around any longer. I miss them strictly for nostalgic purposes. In no particular order…...
