With the McFarland Mall being completely demolished, many people are remembering their fondest memories in the mall. Can you think of 4 stores that you loved to visit at the McFarland Mall?

If you were into sewing or your parents were, chances are you visited this store in the mall. Recently, an old commercial from 1984 resurfaced on Youtube featuring a Tuscaloosa business.

Do you remember Gilberg's Fabrics?  Take a trip down memory lane with their tv commercial below.

This commercial is so 80's! the clothes, the lampshade, and the pictures on the wall. If that doesn't give it away, the video quality definitely does.

It's amazing how we never notice the bad quality until times change and we look back at old things.

According to the description on this youtube video, this commercial originally aired on February 28th, 1984. It was run during a broadcast of "The 26th Grammy Awards" on WCFT in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

The description also states that WCFT channel 33 was the CBS affiliate in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. It's now WSES.

Since I didn't grow up in Tuscaloosa or even Alabama, it would be hard for me to name other businesses that are no longer here from that time period How many can you remember?

I'm interested to know. Send me as many as you can to DreDay@1051TheBlock.Com. Let's see who can really remember some great Tuscaloosa history.
