Welcome back guys in today's video we're going to be exploring the Four Seasons Mall opened in 1978, holding 26 different stores, ranging from a bridal store some different types of restaurants.

Over the years, a grocery store, A, Bank, clothing stores and more the last store to shut down in the mall was marcelo's pizza in February of 2012.

There's been a lot of back and forth on what to do and what is going to be done with the site.

Walmart has expressed interest in buying it and rebuilding, but the soil on the property has made it a challenge for redevelopment.

The city also doesn't want a big business type Corporation moving into their town, which is understandable.

There is plans to demolish and sell to investors for redevelopment, but I am unsure of the current status of that so come along with me and see what is left of the Four Seasons Mall foreign guys we are inside the Four Seasons abandoned Mall I was able to uh get in it, took a little bit so I'm gonna show you this place.

It's been abandoned for some time, not really sure how much was actually here either.

It's not as big as like say like the Northridge Mall, which I've already made a video on, but I definitely wanted to come check this place out.

It's pretty dark in here foreign pretty beat up in here, though, looks like that connects to another little building foreign I know, there's like a bridal building or it looked like.

It was probably like a wedding store that was connected to here.


Uh must be like one of the loading rooms dark in here.

I, wonder what this building was.

Oh I, don't know it's just kind of like a little dead end.

Let's see if I can find more of the store.

That's so weird, it's like a little trike all by itself.

Back here, all right, I originally changed.

The direction I wanted to go.

I originally wanted to.

I was gonna, start walking this way, and then I turned around next I wonder if this was a pharmacy or something yeah, it looks like it.

It's a pharmacy right there cashier.

This probably is a front desk.

Yes, service.

Hmm pop and snacks, household, Pharmacy, Healthcare beauty, Beauty needs cosmetics in the front desk little store.

It's all gutted out, though, looks like someone got extra, thirsty and ripped the Whole Thing Off, the Wall.

Of course.

Okay, you can kind of see how big the mall is.

Let's see if I can show this enough, oh, but you can kind of see how many rooms there, where we're at, because obviously I'm at the little arrow, that's where I am well I, guess I'm still recording.

Oh there's a sled in here.

Another store, not gonna, lie that little chandelier there and this whole little restaurant looks really cool like these boosts look.

So antique look at that.

Obviously, I would assume that this is probably the little kitchen.

Oh yeah, look how old that looks: old, ass racks in the freezer, that's cool, it's a short little restaurant for your safety staff and customers.

I'm not gonna lie I had to stop in there, because I thought I heard like footsteps, I thought I heard someone walking towards me and so I, just like it's like, but no we're all good um.

Oh, it looks like there's more to the restaurant I think um.

Well, this place definitely closed around like 2011, then maybe a little bit after, but um I guess we'll go to the other side, we'll go check the rest of this place out because we're on one end of it right now, but I gotta go the other side, almost positive, that someone cut themselves in here, because there is literally like a trail of blood, just a trail of it all right now we're on the other side of the building.

It's a big empty room, not sure what this would have been either kind of wish.

There was like a little bit more here to actually like see put this in a bunch of like broken glass Curves for women, yeah, just a bunch of empty rooms, it's a little bit more graffiti on this side.

What this was I wonder if this is like a clothing store or something.

This is like a dressing room, foreign, another open room yeah.

There is like not a lot left to this place at all.

I, don't know if they have plans on demoing it either.

This looks like it was probably the biggest section of them all uh.

Maybe it was a grocery part, because I see produce up on the wall and then I see Deli a little bit more graffiti on the wall in here but looks like this must have been the food see our produce and then, like I, said the deli is way over there, but there's like more there's, even like natural art on the wall as well.

Okay, so frozen foods, meat and like see like I, think those are just natural I think those were like on the wall beforehand, part of the wallpaper.

So that's dope.

It's like the basement in there um I, don't think I'm gonna go in there, though, not by myself.

At least it's just wide open.

Oh that's kind of dangerous, but cool back doors from behind, probably in, like the loading area, looks like there's like a another door open.

Ah, it's intriguing I want to go down there, but I don't want to like get stuck down there or have something happen.

So I'll have to wait a little telephone on the ground foreign there's like chairs down there, foreign frozen foods.

All right this place is not as big as some other malls.

If I had to take a guess, I would assume the reason why the mall even became abandoned is just because of how small it is and like just compared to like other malls or even like the fact that people can go to Target or Walmart or really anywhere to get the stuff that they need.

You know, I, guess there really isn't as big a need as small places like this anymore, um.


I hope you guys enjoyed me on another video stay tuned for more content to come, because I always got new places that I'm going to so yeah I'll, see you in the next one I thought this was kind of cool Some, Like, Home, Improvement magazines, there's a bunch of them just kind of like chilling on the ground here, I, don't it says August 2007 on it crazy.

If that kind of puts it into perspective, that's where the restaurant was in.

The very end looks like the Thai restaurant looks like it's a bridal center I'm sure there was a few other like open stores, Four Seasons curves.

That's the girl store.

The fresh Natural Foods is probably where I was at the very end, and that is the Four Seasons Mall foreign.

Thank you.
