The Morgantown Mall (or the new mall as some of us still call it) opened 25 years ago this year. Here are just 11 things that have changed in University City since the other mall opened its doors over I-79.

1. The Mountaineer Mall is now mostly an office building


2. But briefly had new life with a Wal-Mart and Gabes there


3. Both have since moved away but there are now two Wal-Marts in town
