PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) – It may look like an old, outdated mall, but to many long-time Phoenix residents, it’s part of their history.
For Marcy Smith, Paradise Valley Mall will always be that special place where she met her mom for lunch, or spent hours looking for the perfect Christmas present. “They had a carousel, a merry-go-round, anything you wanted to do,” said Smith. “We’d meet friends, meet family; it was very welcoming. I’m going to miss it a lot; not ready to say goodbye, yet.”
Paradise Valley Mall off of Cactus Road and Tatum Blvd has officially closed, with a handful of businesses like Bath and Body Works, JC Penney, Dillards, and Chompies staying open a little longer.
