Christmas at Valley View Mall

A friend of LiveMalls has provided us with a series of photos of vintage Christmas scenes from Valley View Mall in Roanoke, Virginia. The photos were taken during the 1980s and 1990s, and give a definitive example of holiday display during the era.


  1. I used and credited a photo from this post to illustrate my link to your blog. Hope that's okay! Let me know if you'd rather I take the photo down for some reason.

  2. This was when Valley View was at its best! The Fasion & Assoc. era! Creativity at its finest! Fountains galore, Mindboggle arcade, Movie theatre (6 screens), Thalheimers/Hechts, Penneys, Montgomery Ward, Leggett, Sears! The good ole days!

  3. I always loved the original Valley View. My first "real" date was at Spinnaker’s. Heck, most of my early dates involved that mall in some way. I always loved the Christmas displays. These pictures really bring back the memories. Thanks for posting these.
