I remember all those optical illusions they had in the mall.They even had one for their logo.see top photo.
I remember going there to buy white patent leather Easter shoes at Davidsons. I also remember a garden center close by where we always bought our Christmas trees.
I grew up in Decatur not far from the mall and attended Wadsworth Elem. and Columbia High. I remember the Rich's accross the street which I had many friends and family members who worked for Rich's. I remember the outdoor escalator (covered somewhat) in the parking lot in the back of Rich's that took you up to the main landing area to enter Rich's or "window shop" the outdoor stores...wow so long ago it seems. Later when my folks moved to Gwinnett County..I worked at the Columbia Mall Sears back dock loading area ..next to the Catalog Department during High School and college...such fun times ..working while listening to the football games at night at Avondale Stadium..in the back of Sears. I remember clapping your hands to make a waterfall come alive in the Columbia Mall center. Miss it so much. Green Brother's Nursery is the name of the plant/tree store that the other person mention here..loacated on Columbia Drive accross the street from The Mall...next to the Dunk'N'Dine..diner/coffee shop..the building is still there..but a pawn/title..business or something like that..anyway thanks for the opportunity to leave this note...Jeffrey W. Brown..native of Atlanta/Decatur..now living in Dunwoody...
