I can remember back around 2009 or 2010 I stumbled upon this mall online in a block entry on labelscar. It fascinated me. With the mall being in the far north eastern portion of North Carolina I hadnt had a chance to visit it, until now. It is just as magnificent and fascinating as I always had hoped it would be. Before I get on to the pictures I will offer a few basic facts.
- Opened in 1980
- Kmart closed in 2002
- Belk closed in 2006
- The mall was sold in 2014 to a firm in New Jersey.
JC Penney is the last remaining anchor in business at Becker Village Mall and has also closed off their direct mall entrance.
Inside the corridor, goodluck finding any signs of life other than mall walkers.
Kmart at Becker Village Mall closed in the 2002 round of store closings and the space has been vacant since.
The other anchor, Belk, closed in late 2006. This space has also been vacant since Belk’s departure.
One of the few businesses open in the mall is H&R Block.
When I was researching this mall for this entry I came across something someone had posted in 2006. This same exact vinyl banner was in those pictures as well. The banner is still going strong. That’s the only thing still going strong at Becker Village.
