FRAMINGHAM – Shoppers World would have turned 65 years old today. The first mall opened in October 1951.

“That was the BEST place ever to go to! I loved that place, wish they never tore it down, loved that you could walk outside store to store,” wrote Lisa Aiello-Cerasulo.
“So many great memories….movie theater (Star Wars , Jaws & Grease), summer nights, band concerts, Santa & the reindeer, Christmas decorations & shopping….could go on and on…,” wrote Kristen Fox Nason.
“The real reindeer at Christmas time,” wrote Maureen Elizabeth.
“My favorite moments…entire childhood!” wrote Paul McMahon.
Sadly, the original Shoppers World closed in 1994.
