“Our Christmas wish for you are these: May you always see Christmas with the eyes of a child. May you always know the warmth of love, the joy of giving, the magic of Santa Claus and the wonder of a star. May your days be filled with laughter and your lives be filled with peace.” from the Rolling Acres Merchants (The Akron Beacon Journal, 1991)

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a department store with three Christmas carolers near.

Could it be the WQMX “Wish Upon A Star” Wish Wheel where you could spin for a free trip, a telescope kit, or a $1,000 shopping spree? I’m in!

  1. I worked at Rolling Acres Mall for numerous years. Stores included at the time were JoAnn Fabrics and Northern Reflections and helped at Bridals by Philvens when needed. Carry many memories with me especially at the Holidays. Miss this mall.

  2. I was watching the show “abandoned “. Rolling Acres was featured. It broke my heart.
    I grew up in akron until i was 10. I now live on coastal NC.
    I have such fond memories of this mall especially at Christmas.
    My mom has passed and my dad is still in Cuyahoga Falls.

    It saddens me to see the state of many places I loved . It seems much of ohio has had economic problems.
    I wanted to thank those who have shared picts. I’d like to thank the gentlemans family of the train conductor. I’m sure i drove him nuts, lol.
    Thank you again and God bless you all. God bless Akron and the rest of OH.♡
