Yes, I remember that now. The optical shop was near the mall entrance on the left beside Iveys and Eckerd (with its lunch counter) was in the middle main mall entrance. Morrison's Cafeteria and Baskin Robbins were across the way . Part of that Eckerd space by the main entrance became a Fatz Café in the 90's I believe.

Yes, there was an optical store in the Eckerd's store itself, right at the entrance. Then it moved and became a stand-alone store. The Fatz Cafe was a bank branch until the '90/'91 renovation.

I think I spent too much time at McAlister Square! I always didn't care for Haywood, and Greenville Mall was a dump.

For some reason, an old movie ad for the Belmont outdoor cinema that was located on Wade Hampton in Taylors was posted on Twitter.
