Whoa!  The mall is turning the big “five-oh”!  July 20, 2020, will be the mall’s 50th birthday and we’ll be planning a celebration.

In the meantime, we could use your help.

Did you once have a job at the mall, enjoy hanging out with friends, or maybe spend time shopping with your family when you were young?  We’re looking for your photos — along with favorite memories and stories — to help us create a timeline illustrating the past 50 years. If you have something you’d like to submit for use, you can click on the form below.  We’ll also be posting the photo and story request on our Facebook page from time to time.

In the meantime, check out more great throwback photos of La Palmera, formerly Padre Staples Mall, from the Corpus Christi Caller-Times.  http://bit.ly/313NvaC.
