Apparently Sakowitz was not where Parisian is now....do you know it might have been?

Also, early newspaper archives indicate that the mall had an amphitheater. Was it that in the massive Time Out on the Court area, or somewhere else?

It was a mess from the day it opened, and still is.

There was no amphitheater..There was an open area in the center of the mall where they tried to have a few shows.

I believe that Sackowitz was on the left side (facing where Bass Pro Shop is now) Like across a T from Kohls

@Mike1003: Thanks for the reply. I do recall reading about how they filled in a sunken center court area to use for café seating (it's now the pig statues, apparently).

The food court is also odd. I heard it was originally two levels (and the top level was sealed off and later demolished)

Default food court

Yes, I do remember eating at the upstairs food court. I think the food up there was better than downstairs!

It is the city's crappiest mall by far, but yet its most prosperous. This mall discussed in this thread is FAR superior in almost every aspect, yet fails......
Tri-County used to be nice, but now it is a complete run down dump. A lot of that has to do with the stores that have moved into the mall. But it is also somewhat reflective of the neighborhood and areas around it and their decline. Sharonville, Fairfield, Forest Park, none of those areas are as nice as they once were.

I'm surprised Northgate hasn't closed, but it will. Didn't JC Penney's and Dillard's both leave the mall? I think they are down to just 2 anchor stores.

I vaguely remember this as well. I definitely remember all the games it had for kids in the middle of the mall. I think they had a putt-putt and things like that as well as a Ferris Wheel in the middle of the mall.

I personally love the layout of Forest Fair. Always have. It's big and has beautiful wood floors. I dont know why it never took off. Maybe the rent was too high? I dont know. But it is a much nicer layout and building than Northgate and Tri-County.
