1957 - the south entrance of the Burdine's department store at 163rd Street Shopping Center

163rd Street Shopping Center, Dade County, Florida

The mall entrance (south side) level was the main floor but 2nd floor of the store. The first floor had entrances/exits at the parking lot level at the rear (north side) of the store. There was also a third floor and possibly a fourth floor (I can't remember).

other sizes: small medium original

I worked at this Burdine's 163 st shopping store, working there was a lot of fun, the store was very glamorous, every morning before the store opened they use to play "Young at Heart" by Frank Sinatra. The store Manager at the time was Mr Shanahan. Great memories.

I worked at Harmony Music Shop in the arcade shops in 1967-68. Lots of girls stopped there on their way to the beach. I was in heaven at 18 years old.

Can you sing the 163rd Street jingle? "G-i-a-n-t choice and value, every time you enter"
The local merchants feared the 163rd Street shopping center and actually tried to change the name of the street...

Those were the days...and now it's closed. It started to go down hill sometime after Adventura Mall was built. Anita Dee

Hey fellow native NMBer's!! Love the pictures of Burdines at 163street mall. I guess they didn't put the amusement rides (like the kiddie train) in the front of Burdines until the 60's. I was born in 1960 and lived down the street from there and rode those every time we went to the mall. My sister Connie worked at the restaurant at Walgreens next door and she made some delicious "black cows" for us. Of course we also loved the movie theater in the back. And how 'bout the "Arcade Shops"? I got into plenty of trouble as a teenager throughout that mall. LOL! Eileen Kraemer Howard

Those were the days for sure. Gosh how I miss Burdine's and Jordan Marsh.
