Merritt Square Mall - Merritt Island, FL

Merritt Square Mall
777 E. Merritt Island Causeway, Merritt Island, FL

Merritt Square Mall originally opened in 1970, and as of 2018 is anchored by Sears, JCPenney, Macy’s, Dillard’s, Cobb Cinemas, and Books-A-Million. For more details on the history of this mall, please click here!

Entering Merritt Square Mall from the Sykes Creek Parkway entrance, we find this directory sign that points drivers to each of the mall’s anchor stores (with the exception of Books-A-Million – I guess you just have to circle to mall to find them!). These directory signs were designed to resemble the mall’s main road signs. Since the closure of Sports Authority in 2016, their name has been scraped off all of the directory signs (this particular photo was taken prior to that, although the majority of the photos you’ll be seeing throughout this photoset were taken in May 2018 – relatively recent photos for a change, rather than some that have been sitting on my computer collecting virtual dust for the last 2 or 3 years!).

The last store left at the Westminster Mall. I miss the days of the malls from the 70s, 80s, and early 90s. I have good memories from back then.

I will post a video of a song from the 90s, You Get What You Give, and it always makes me think of "those days" that I miss so much right now.

lyrics by the New Radicals:
"You Get What You Give"

Wake up kids
We’ve got the dreamers disease
Age 14 we got you down on your knees
So polite, you’re busy still saying please
Fri-enemies, who when you’re down ain’t your friend
Every night we smash their Mercedes-Benz
First we run and then we laugh till we cry
But when the night is falling
and you cannot find the light
If you feel your dream is dying
Hold tight
You’ve got the music in you
Don’t let go
You’ve got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don’t give up
You’ve got a reason to live
Can’t forget you only get what you give
Four a.m. we ran a miracle mile
were flat broke but hey we do it in style
The bad rich
God’s flying in for your trial


This whole damn world can fall apart
You’ll be ok follow your heart
You’re in harms way
I’m right behind
Now say youre mine


Fly high
What’s real can’t die
You only get what you give
Just dont be afraid to leave
Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they’re multiplying
Fashion mag shoots
with the aid of 8 dust brothers Beck, Hanson
Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson
You’re all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We’ll kick your ass in!
Don’t let go
One dance left
