Park Lane Mall - Reno - 1967
This mall map from the Nevada State Journal newpaper on March 9, 1967, displays the original layout and stores. The caption under the mall map reads “Parking for 3000 cars. When completed Park Lane will have over 50 fine stores to serve you.”
Park Lane Centre was Reno’s first regional shopping mall, luring Sears from its original downtown Reno location.
Sadly, Park Lane is no more. Changing consumer patterns, loss of anchor stores, and the rising popularity of Meadowood Mall down the street took its toll.
