Sears, Northwest Plaza

I have a sentimental soft spot for the Northwest Plaza Sears, as its architecture is very similar to the mall I went to as a child in Saginaw, Michigan, Fashion Square Mall.
I also realized that in some ways the architecture reminds me of Jabba the Hutt's palace from third Star Wars movie.
Perhaps a serious problem for Northwest Plaza was that while the interior received a face-lift, the outside did not.
Yes, that is a hawk sitting on the roof of the canopy in front of the store.
Lava rock abounds in this building, and it adds a nice touch to the decoration.

  1. The thing that used to get me about this Sears is it had the modern logo up front, the 70's serif logo on one side, and if you looked really hard from a specific angle, the ooooooold script logo on the other side.
