Sears Closing in Elyria, Ohio

This area was the second and final home of the electronics section. The electronics section was removed fairly recently and the kitchen section was moved into its place. The old kitchen section is now blocked off.

This Sears store in Elyria, Ohio is closing in early September 2017.

The Midway Mall opened in 1966 with Higbee’s, Sears, JCPenney, and Woolworth as anchor stores. Over the years, Higbee’s became Dillard’s (then closed in 2007) and Woolworth became Best Buy. A new south wing was added to Midway Mall in 1990. That wing featured a May Company department store (later Kaufmann’s and Macy’s before closing in early 2016).

As of Summer 2017, the Sears department store is closing and the mall has just been sold for .25 million on July 12th. As of writing this, the buyer of the mall has yet to be known. The rumors for what happens to the mall next are all over the place; they range from a hospital complex to a hotel / casino complex to a giant mobile home park (obviously a joke)…

Hopefully something actually is done rather than letting the mall slowly die like Randall Park or Rolling Acres did. At least the occupancy in this mall has stabilized for the small stores over the last couple years instead of continuing downward. The department store closings seem to be the biggest drain on the mall; JCPenney is the last traditional department store left at the mall after the Sears closing.

I decided to post these 130 photos as the photos that bring me over 10,000 photo mark on Flickr. I chose this mall because it is my hometown mall.

Hotel Yotel (Hell’s Kitchen)

My room. Sorry, I mean cabin!

Yotel’s are based on the Japanese "pod" concept of hotels. The cabins are a little larger than pods, but still very small compared to traditional hotels. Airplane cabin designers were actually hired for this!

New York’s Yotel is North America’s only.
