Kim Komando Special to USA TODAY Published 5:00 AM EDT Jun 13, 2019 Daily necessities are vanishing one by one, thanks to new and efficient technology. Stamps, maps, and cookbooks still exist, but we hardly ever need them.

The Underground is a thriving incubator in downtown Port Huron, in the basement of the old Sperry's department store on Huron Street in what is now the Sperry Moviehouse, a boutique cineplex. The theaters had their grand reopening in December 2016. As part of a $1 million federal Brownfields Economic Development Initiative grant to help fund renovation costs, Chuck Reid, a Holland-based entrepreneur, agreed to allow a business incubator to be housed in the basement.

Before it broke ground 36 years ago, the land belonged to the Kiddieland Amusement Park, a place where the children of L.A. who lived west-ish would celebrate their birthdays riding ponies, Ferris wheels and merry-go-rounds.After the Beverly Center opened in 1982, it was a novel attraction for … [Read more...] about Scenes From a Mall: The Beverly Center Then and Now
