Collin Creek mall on a busy Saturday 2018

Only the ghosts of Christmas past know how busy Collin Creek mall used to be on weekends.

Huge bargains if you dare venture into the mall.

Great deals at Sears and JCPenney, Bath and Body Works, The White Barn Candle Co., Victoria’s Secret, Kay Jewelers, and give some business to the BM Tailor, Nailery, Beauty Chaserz Salon, Personalizing-It embroidery and screen printing store, Fast-Fix jewelry and watch repair and the Shoe Care Center biz.

Almost like having a personal shopping experience.

Camera pointed at old Macy’s location near once busy corner of mall with Tino’s Restaurant on southwest side in Plano at U.S. 75 and Plano Parkway.
