Ok, I did a bit more research and it looks like there are still shops that offer something similar to this. I came across the video below and I think it's something similar, although not near as fancy, to what I remember. I keep thinking it was either in Louisville or Southern Indiana.

Yes, Ayr-Way is now Target at Park Place / Westland Mall. I wonder which came first. The Jesus sign across from the mall or Ayr-Way. I know it's been there since the late 70s...

I remember some of them.

1. Ayr Way- later became Target
2. Arlans- Old store on 7th Street. I remember the old wooden floors. Now a flea market maybe?
3. Woolco- Worked there my senior year in H.S.
4. Hess-??? Don't know why but I'm thinking gas station
5. Topps- ??? Name rings a bell but I can't place it. A department store?

Wow! Y'all have reminded me of a lot of forgotten places. I thought of a few more that have disappeared. (Hope I haven't duplicated any.)

Rax Restaurant
Annabelle's Restaurant
Banquet Table
Rose's
Ghost Town
Winn Dixie
Drug Emporium
Taylor's

There was a steakhouse in Jefferson Mall--I can't remember the name of it, but it had big, medieval looking wood doors at the entrance, and was dimly light.

Also, there was a seafood restaurant in Okolona--Kip's Kove. Does anyone know if that's still in business?

Wasn't that Jefferson Mall steakhouse called York's?

Kip's Kove is closed and has been for quite a while. Remember when it used to be called Cape Codder?

I'd rather Rax. Not really... Rax is still around barely. About 5 or so restaurants left. Nearest one in Harlan, KY

York Steakhouse does ring a bell. I'm so glad you thought of that--it was driving me crazy tryingto remember the name.

Does anyone remember other clothing stores at Jefferson Mall that closed, Marianne's and Jean Nicole? I remember buying a cheap prom dress from Marianne's.

Another store I thought that's history is O.G. Wilson.

Does House of James (aka, House of Shames) exist anymore?

Cut n Curl was another hair cutting chain that seems to have disappeared from Louisville.
