Soon the Metcalf South shopping center at 95th and Metcalf in the bustling suburb of Overland Park might be a thing of the past. Although I have been here only one before, it was still open for business, although closed for the night. I never got to go inside because mall management later decided to close the mall entirely.
Big plans are in the works for the plaza, new shopping trends, or residential space. A Lowe's is the latest plan, but no action has been seen just yet.
The former French Market/ Kmart store across 95th is not included in any possible development plans, at least not yet.
Here is the former French Market, and other empty stores around the plaza.
The Kmart has not been open for several years, and there is a great article in Pleasant Family Shopping about the French Market back in the 60's and 70's.
Here is the rest of the Metcalf South mall. The former The Jones Store/ Macy's below closed around March 2014.
The week I was here, a consignment for children's toys and clothing was held at the former Macy's.
Sears is still open, and would not be included in any of the future development, unless it closed before then.
Pretty neat old cars parked in front of Sears.
Did not see this in the dark before, a retro Sears receiving sign.
