The Fairgrounds Square Mall

Built on the site of the old Reading Fairgrounds

Opened in 1980

Renovated in 1996

Sold at the turn of the millennium

The Mall changes hands again in 2013.

and again in 2016

Almost a year later and still just as uncertain.

UPDATE APRIL 2018:  The inside of the mall is closed, only the stores with access from outside remain. 

Born and raised in Berks, I am fascinated by the style, design & culture of the mid-late 20th century. I started this website to research and build a collection of the places, things and stories I have heard about my entire life. Read more here.

    That you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone?
    They paved paradise
    Put up a parking lot”
