  1. It’s so sad to see Century III mall eerily vacant. We have nothing in our area now.

  2. It makes me so sad to see this happening, I loved going there so many good times going shopping there.You could find anything you wanted because of all the stores,and the food court,its just so so sad.

  3. I loved this mall had alot of good times great stores imnsobsad this is happening

  4. So sad

  5. I can remember going there as a kid with my family. My brother and I would rush to finish out pizza so we could run to KB Toys and then run all the way back to go into the pet store to see the puppies. Cherished childhood memories.

  6. Sad

  7. It’s sad to see the mall go like this. It’s crazy how a daily bus full of bums can ruin something so great.

  8. what is sad is that this is just one of many sad scenes in a once booming manufacturing region , one of the best in the entire country , laid to waste by politicians who traded away our futures , our destinies to participate in the global economy.

  9. What is the cause of this?? Can someone give me an answer please

  10. its the usually the mall corporate fault IMO, insane rent prices, yearly rent raising, ridiculous long term contracts, strict rules for no apparent/true reasons, on top of declining of people that shop in stores vs online.

  11. I remember the before, I have heard about the after but never went. When I was a kid, it actually considered a fun day as a boy to wait for hours in Fashion bug, waiting on your mom and sister, because the train was always running and there was always something new to do or event to see.

  12. Wow it is very sad to see that Century III mall is so empty and deserted. I remember going every Friday and sometimes on Saturdays to just hang out with all my friends.

  13. I still go to century three from time to time to go shopping. It’s not as dead as it seems in the pictures. It looks like the ownners are trying to make a comeback & I really hope they do. I would love to see this mall thriving like it use to.

  14. Watched them dumping slag as a child building up that area, watched them dig it out and build that mall (my mother who was battling cancer hoped to see the inside of that mall before she passed) now watching it die a very long slow death just like I had to witness with mom. Very sad both events happened. . . . why can’t this area of town keep anything NICE? It seems like business owners try but it all gets so run down looking in the Century III area. . Look at Century Square also! Doesn’t look this way over near the South Hills Village area!

  15. These pictures make my heart hurt. Century 3 was a thriving mall, it is empty now and so sad to see there is nothing left. We have nothing left in our area and that is heartbreaking.

  16. The decline of Century 3 Mall is a heartbreaking shame. There is plenty of money from consumers in the surrounding areas who would be willing to spend money there again if the right people would do the right thing. We need new stores and restaurants in the West Mifflin area there. IT COULD BE GREAT AGAIN! Year after year the mall has been in decline and nothing has been done to revamp, restore and for the owners to do something and the West Mifflin politicians. It is a pitiful shame. So many of us have fabulous memories of times spent there, not to mention the jobs that were available. Time for action!

  17. I am a PhD student and I have published research on this mall. It is not the neighborhoods surrounding the mall it is infact competition in the form of other malls and online shopping

  18. This is so depressing…My grandmother would take me here all time time. She just recently passed and going here with her and riding the carousel and getting toys at KBs was great.

    Online shopping hasn’t destroyed malls, there are many doing well in our area. It’s just sad the real downfall to malls like Century 3 and soon to be Monroeville Mall is not being discussed.

  19. It was such a pretty mall, so much sparkle and shine. I remember walking through there, sooo many people. And I remember when you couldn’t find a place to park during Christmas, not even on the street!!!

  20. i grew up in the area, before that mall was even though of. Used to walk thru the woods, cross over 885 and thru the vast slag dump to go to Southland (usually headed to the record mart! LOL) When that mall was first opened up, it was THE PLACE to go. Never thought i would see it go down as much as it has. So very sad.

    I totally agree with this statement made by Brent Kovac on May 17, 2016

  22. all this thanks to a recession no one will admit to . cant wait til move to Canada

  23. When I came to WV in 2000 Century 111 is the first mall my husband took me to. I fell in love with the mall and every year went there. There was about 3 years we had not gone and when we did go we were shocked to see but a handful of cars and totally dead! I did break my heart to see it so dead! There are so many outlets and other stores opening that the malls soon will be a thing of the past. Our children will ask “What is a mall?” Scary… 🙁

  24. Damn. I have some very fond memories at this mall. I can’t believe it’s almost over. Things can be rejuvenated with the right ideals and financial assistance. I have numerous ideals myself. Why not give it to the public and make a non profit. I see indoor amusement park. Kennywood need to look at the options of a year around amusement park. Indoor water park. Sand castle ducks anyway. Rock climbing. Go kart racing. Concert venue. Possible dog racing. There are plenty of incentives to make tons of money off that place. We just have to get the right investment. Think about it. Only thing they probably going to do is raze the building and build some cheap houses and charge insane amount of money to stay there. Then twenty years later section8 and there goes beautiful West Mifflin.

  25. Even worse now than those pictures. Macy’s is gone. Heard rumblings about JcPenny’s possibly closing this coming summer. No food court restaurants left, NONE. Used to be 22. Maybe 30-35 stores left out of what used to be 200. It’d be surprised if it lasted another year or two. So very sad to see

  26. I have noticed you don’t monetize your blog, don’t waste your traffic, you can earn additional cash every month because you’ve got high quality content.
