Plymouth Meeting Mall Trivia
Funny you should mention eating at Woolworth's restaurant with your grandma, as I was remembering the place as exactly the kind of place you'd go with grandparents for lunch. The Harvest House, if I remember the name correctly, was essentially a diner (in an era long before the gourmet sensibility infiltrated the suburbs). The above mentioned Plymouth Grille, which was a square lunch counter, was I believe right outside Woolworth's in the mall itself.
Wow - the theater I had nearly forgotten about that! I spent my formative years in the 80's in that mall...ah the memories. I actually went to SEE movies in that theater but I can't remember what I saw exactly. And if you're recalling cool 70's / 80's memories, then you certainly have to mention the giant 2-story Woolworth, replete with its own escalators that was there! The restaurt it had off to the side with the cool 70's diner-esque booths and a sandwich bar with booths! AND one of those chilled glass refrigerators that the desserts revolved in. For whatever reason I remember thinking those spinning desserts were so cool as a kid. I think I only ate there twice with my grandma but it made an impression. It wasn't always Boscov's at the end but I can't recall what it was. Anyways, thanks for the happy trip down memory lane... ~Conshy Girl
