When I was a teenager, the place to hang out was the Mall. Now that I am older I don’t go to the mall that often since the type of stores in the mall “ain’t my cup of tea” as they say, and the arcade is gone also. I did find the Sparr Mall northeast of Gaylord, in the town of Sparr, and that’s more my style of where I like to shop.
The town of Sparr was named after Philip Sparr who settled in the area in 1873. The town eventually got a station on the Gaylord & Alpena Railroad, but it’s gone now, although the mall is still in business.
