The SpringFord area has become home to a new an interesting species of retail: The Zombie Store. Theses are stores which on the outside seem to be fully functioning businesses. In reality, they haven't been opened in years. The CD shop pictured above was open for a few months in 2000, then closed, never to reopen again. The Sprint store at least has a "This Sprint Store Closed" sign on the door, but otherwise looks to be open. Note that the display posters in each store' s window are faded to the point of blue.
