Inside Fayette Mall, looking down towards one of it’s anchor stores, Sears, Sept. 17, 1992. The Hess’s department store at right is where the JCPenny is today. In May 1993, the mall expanded, adding nearly two dozen businesses in a new south wing that was accessed through the Sears. The expansion made it Kentucky’s largest mall. The Sears store closed in Jan. 2014 and it was renovated to it’s current form. Note the women in the orange shirt walking towards the camera is smoking.
