About Me

I just loved "THE MALL" as a teen wandering around, and most of my first jobs where there.

Little did I know that after I moved from this area that it would close it doors. 

Greengate had the park-like setting of Idlewild, instead of the rush of Westmoreland Mall and  Kennywood.  It made shopping and just hanging out a pleasure, not a rush.  Too bad for us in this very busy world.

     The atmosphere was low key, not the the hyper-sterile!

And, where can we find "A Shop Called East" anymore?  Our area is so full of Americana and is slow in "catching any wave" that even that shop would raise eyebrows now around here!

About Me

I owned a store in the Greengate mall from November of 1995 until February of 1997. That store was named Gift Trek "Unique Star Trek Gifts and Collectibles" While we were there, we met many people from the community and made some enduring friends.

Gift Trek was located on the main level near the food court.

Since leaving the mall, Gift Trek has continued on the internet. We are at www.gifttrek.net. From our beginnings at the mall we have grown to have customers in all 50 of the United Staes and in 12 international territories and countries. Gift Trek is still a very small business and I still run it my self.

While I have lost much more of my vision, I have not lost my love for Star Trek nor my drive to improve my business.

About Me

I used to work at the JC Penney store when I was a teenager from 1976-1981 so on my lunch hours I wandered the mall.  It was always such a cheerful mall and unlike Wastmoreland Mall - it was bright and sunny.  The decorations at Chirstmas were always so well done.  It was a shame what happened to it and how the mall got run down those last few years
