I'm Jane in the rain

one- day event -- hometown ads

Essexville, Michigan (one of my many hometowns) had the Hampton Square Mall.  By the mid 1990s it was rapidly losing business thanks to competition from malls in nearby Bay City and Midland.  At some point this mall had a name change to Hampton Town Centre, which did nothing to improve its prospects. It basically died in the early 2000s.  Last I heard, the building was mostly empty save for a few local government offices.
