There are only 8 days left until Christmas. This is usually around the time that I panic and run to the mall to finish my holiday shopping. Luckily, we have the North Shore Mall right here in Peabody.
On December 5, 1954 it was announced that a $10,000 shopping center was planned for West Peabody, on the site of the St. Joseph Juniorate. In 1955 Allied Stores acquired the property. The official dedication for the North Shore Shopping Center was held on September 12, 1958. Today the North Shore Shopping Center has become the North Shore Mall, the largest mall in New England.
Does anyone remember the North Shore Mall when it was the North Shore Shopping Center? Warren Five and Ten Cents Bank was there. So was Filene’s and Jordan Marsh. Can you remember other stores from the North Shore Shopping Center?
