Old Montgomery Ward store, Mountaineer Mall, Morgantown, WV

Old Montgomery Ward store, Mountaineer Mall, Morgantown, WV
The Mountaineer Mall opened in 1975, anchored by JCPenney, Montgomery Ward, and Murphy's Mart. In spite of a botched '80s expansion (adding a fourth anchor, Stone & Thomas, and a line of stores with only exterior entrances), it fell on hard times in the '90s and is hanging by a thread today.

At the time, the old Montgomery Ward anchor had been squatted as the offices for a telemarketing firm, of all things.
