I used to decorate the mall for Christmas and Easter. It was such a blast to work with such an artistic group of people!  My very first job was the "Opening Easter Bunny"! And I got to ride the train ON the Engine! That was such a thrill seeing as I rode the train as a child :)

When I think Greengate Mall, I think birds. The giant birdcage, the minah bird at the pet shop, the occasional bird flying loose inside the mall.

I really love all of these wonderful memories! My parents met at Horne's in the 60's. So I guess I could say that if it weren't for Greengate Mall, I would not be here!

I really miss this mall. I use to eat there and sit and watch the birds in the bird cage. Plus the christmas display was always beautiful. It brings back alot of memories of my Mom and Dad ( thier gone now ) taking me shopping with them.
