A new bookstore and a toy store for kids are added to Palmer Park Mall's roster.
When Palmer Park Mall reopened after being closed four straight days due to power outages from Superstorm Sandy, a few things were different. For one, the mall was all decked out for Christmas in anticipation of the holiday shopping season and the arrival of Santa Claus this Saturday. But two of the mall's vacancies were also now filled. A new book store -- Books for Less -- opened in the location where Green Books and Waldenbooks used to be. And the mall also added a popular new toy store, Go! Games and Toys, off of the center court and across from AT&T. There are still several vacancies in the mall, which has been trying to fill open spaces for some time.
