@Harena and I are gleeing and totally flashing back because the mall in Stranger Things 3 is OMG TOTALLY SOUTH SQUARE MALL. Like, EVERY DETAIL.

Except the logo for Sam Goody's had records for the "o"s.

...and wasn't at South Square. South Square's two record stores were Record Bar and Camelot Music.

(My sister was classmates with one of the daughters of the founder of Record Bar.)

(For those who don't know, the fictional Indiana town in which ST is set was heavily based on Durham, where the Duffer Brothers grew up. ...they were born the year before I first left, the year was found, the year WQDR switched from album rock to country... it wasn't a good year.)

@woozle And one of my best friends' bf was the son of the architect(? partial owner? Something; dude was super rich) of South Square.
