I took a drive out to Mesa on Sunday and while I was there, I decided to go inside Fiesta Mall, the mall I featured at the end of last month. I was curious to see what it looked like inside. I remembered it as being a new and attractive mall back in the 80's. From the outside I got the impression that Sears and Best Buy were the only two stores still open. I was wrong.
Although there were quite a lot of empty stores, there were still lots of stores that were open.
Then I noticed that Dillard's was open which surprised me. I saw hardly any cars on that side of the mall. When I went inside Dillards I noticed that there were signs everywhere saying "Inventory Closeout" and it had that warehouse look to it with racks and racks of sale items. It looks like Dillard's will be closing soon.
I stopped by the food court for a quick peek. I was there at noon and as you can see, not many people were getting lunch.
On the end of the mall by Sears, there was a very nice playground that was being used by quite a few children.
One thing that impressed me was that the mall was quite attractive. I think I was expecting it to be a bit run-down but, that wasn't the case at all. It was just very, very quiet. Not at all what it's like when I visit Scottsdale Fashion Square. I'm glad I stopped to see what it is like now.
