This is part 2 of the best preserved open dead-mall.

Westland Mall is an 860,000-square-foot shopping center located on the west side of Columbus, OH.

*Overview of the mall*

The mall opened in 1969 as an open air shopping mall (like Dixie Square in Illinois), and was enclosed in 1982. The anchors are Sears (which is huge), Macy's shut down shortly after the name change, woolworth but shut down after closing many of their stores worldwide (The one at Dixie closed before the mall was abandoned.)

*Notice the door is open to the right, their just begging customers to come in*

Like Cincinnati Mall in Cincy, Westland faced the same issue of popularity to Northgate, this mall lost business to Mall at Tuttle Crossing.

Currently Westland has 10 stores active out of few more than 60. smaller than Cincinnati Mall.

Enjoy the rest of the set!
