It’s sad how this mall went under. 🙁
Rolling Acres Mall was a retail mall located in the Rolling Acres area of Akron, Ohio, United States. Built in 1975 and expanded several times in its history, it once comprised more than 140 stores, including five anchor stores, a movie theater and a food court. The mall was closed off in 2008, save for the only two anchors still in operation, Sears and JCPenney Outlet. However, in January 2011, Sears Holdings announced the Sears store would close by April 2011. In January 2011, JCPenney announced they would close all outlet stores including the Rolling Acres store. In October 2011, an independent company purchased all of JCPenney’s Outlet Stores with plans to rename them and continue to operate them. In October 2013, it was announced that JC’s 5 Star Outlet would close, and on December 31, 2013, the mall’s final retail store shuttered. The mall currently houses Storage of America and Pinnacle Recycling. One of the mall’s dilapidated entrances appears as the cover art to The Black Keys’ single “Gold on the Ceiling”.
