In the ’80s, there was nothing better than meeting up with your friends at the mall. It was the place to hangout. On a typical Saturday in the ’80s, you’d see cool kids, nerds, jocks, and punks all walking around acting as if they were the coolest kids on the planet. As I watched this video of photos from ’80s malls, it took me back to all the sounds and smells from my own mall as a teenager: The food court, water fountains, people walking around smoking cigarettes, the sound of Donkey Kong and Pac Man coming from the arcade, and ’80s music playing in the background. It was a much simpler time back then. You went to the mall and just walked around for hours and hung out with your friends, and it was exactly what you wanted to do.
Enjoy this trip down memory lane to a mall near you in the ’80s!
