This boxy, bland building is a strange place to find history, but, as Idaho's oldest shopping mall, it claims a unique place in shopping history. Today, it plays second fiddle to the jazzier and more popular Boise Towne Square Mall. However, local shoppers still congregate to the elder statesman of Idaho malls. Popular department stores like the Bon Marche and Emporium are located here, as well as smaller stores like Radio Shack and Kay Bee Toy Store. Movie-goers will find the Karcher Reel Cinema and hungry shoppers can chow down at a variety of restaurants.
