Woodhaven Mall

I remember when this mall was built in the sixties [see correction in Comments, below- Editor], in a section of Bensalem called Andalusia, but actually a small subsection of it known as Cabbage Patch. It originally had a Woolco where the Home Depot is now, and it later became a Jamesway. The other anchor was originally a Gaudios holiday and garden center, and that chain was bought out by Frank's, a similar, now-defunct, chain. I worked in a Rite Aid there for many years. My friends worked in the Donut Shack that later became a small Chinese restaurant that moved to the front of the mall. There was a Keller's House of Music, Fashion Bug, Radio Shack, Guru of India, a camera store, a General Nutrition, and several other stores. Also, there was a great arcade with lots of pinball machines. The mall was completely remodeled at some point, and is really not a mall any longer but a shopping center, and the movie theater moved from deep inside the mall to outside.
