Oh, how the shopping has changed in Amarillo. Yes, it really has. Yes, we have a lot of the same stores that we always have. We also have some new ones that have moved in. Then some of the stores that we remember have had some changes..
It's been years since Amarillo could go to Westgate Mall and catch a good movie. I mean years. I remember going there a lot. Catching a movie and doing some shopping. Or dropping my daughter off to watch a movie while I shopped.
Westgate Mall has been one of the main staples for shopping in Amarillo. It's the perfect place to find whatever you need in clothing, and gifts and it has an awesome food court. However, many stores have come and gone over the years.
Westgate took a hit last year when they lost a few food places in the food court. Places that have been around for a bit. Both Sonic and Corn Dog 7 were gone. So there has been some prime real estate in the mall for some great food places to move in.
We had a time where we learned a lot of places were leaving Westgate Mall, especially food places. We need great places to eat while we are doing our shopping. Since we are getting closer to the holiday season we need those places now.
At the end of last year, we found out that a few places we have known and loved in the food court at Westgate Mall closed down. It seemed we had no warning that Sonic and Corn Dog 7 was gone. What were we going to do?
