This wonderful piece of Strawbridges architecture opened in September of 1978. It was a piece of Christiana Mall. The store featured the regular style of escalator well with stairs. It also included a fountain at the bottom. There was a restaurant overlooking the Giant mall foutain. The store ultimately closed in 2006 after Macy's already had a location here in the former Bambergers. General Growth Properties (GGP) bought both this building and the former John Wanamaker/Lord and Taylor. It was Demolished in 2008 and replaced with Nordstrom in 2011.
