Kaiser Center Mall

This vintage newspaper clipping is from August 3, 1966. This little piece of history not only has an article about Grodins opening a new location in the Kaiser Center Mall in Oakland, but there also is an advertisement for Dorothy's also opening in Kaiser Center, too.
According to the article, Grodins will be the first major store to open in downtown Oakland since 1960.
I'm fairly certain this shopping center is no more. The building is still there, but there is no trace of a shopping center.
This is one mall that I have absolutely no memories. I hope someone out there in blog-land can shed some light or share their memories!
