The Death of Retail, Pasadena Edition
Opened as a stand-alone Foley’s in 1962, the store was later expanded, then included as part of the Pasadena Town Square mall. The Foley’s stores were bought by Macy’s, which is in the process of closing 63 stores.
It closed this past Sunday, and a staff member at the store told me that they were trying to sell the building.
With the slow end of retail and the overall downward spiral of Pasadena, Texas including the closure of the old Champion paper mill in Pasadena, the closure of the store wasn’t a surprise.
But it doesn’t feel good.
