square footage

  • General Growth Properties claims 1,700,000 gross leasable space. A June 29, 2006 Birmingham News graphic citing the "International Council of Shopping Centers" credits the Galleria with 1.58 million. --Dystopos 21:14, 12 August 2006 (PDT)

(c. 1993) directory

  • Facebook user Mary Jo Fields uploaded this mall directory, which she claimed to have saved from when she began working at Parisian in 1986. --Dystopos (talk) 18:56, 10 July 2019 (PDT)
    • It appears to be from c. 1993 (link) --Dystopos (talk) 06:36, 21 October 2019 (PDT)


Is there a reason this page has a "NOTOC"? I think it could use one. --Lkseitz (talk) 20:34, 20 October 2019 (PDT)

Electronics Boutique

  • First, Electronics Boutique was there since 1986, as seen on Mary Jo Fields' 1986 tenant list. Second, it was not in the same space until 2003. It was originally on the upper level by the elevators in front of where the Macy's entrance would eventually be. This may be where Francesca's currently is according to the current map on the Galleria website; I'm not entirely sure. (And BTW, Francesca's seems to be missing from the tenant list.) It later moved down near JC Penney, still on the upper level, on the east side, but I don't remember exactly where. I also want to say it moved there before 1995, but cannot guarantee that's correct. --Lkseitz (talk) 20:40, 20 October 2019 (PDT)
    • I'll have to go back through Mary Jo Fields' list. At first glance it appeared to be the same as this c. 1995 brochure (link), so all the ones I had noted as "1986" I changed to "1995" because I thought her date to be suspect. --Dystopos (talk) 06:36, 21 October 2019 (PDT)
      • After review, it appears her directory is c. 1993, Per commenter Jennifer Bice, "That directory is not from 1986. I has to be from circa 1993 because in 1986, Bath & Body Works, The Nature Company, Candy Express, Crackers, Glamor Shots, and the U.S. Post Office were not in the mall."

        • I know EB was at 278, by the tower entrance, in 1990-- because that's where I bought "Ultima VI" and "The Savage Empire". --Dystopos (talk) 06:22, 21 October 2019 (PDT) --Dystopos (talk) 06:36, 21 October 2019 (PDT)
          • That's probably the same year I bought Centauri Alliance for the Apple II there. --Lkseitz (talk) 05:04, 22 October 2019 (PDT)
          • I have "Francesca's Collections" in space 118, almost directly below the 1990 EB space. --Dystopos (talk) 06:36, 21 October 2019 (PDT)
            • Oops. I must have had the wrong level selected on the mall map. --Lkseitz (talk) 05:04, 22 October 2019 (PDT)
