1988 Spokane Indians at the Mall - Bob Curnow

Catcher Bob Curnow played in the Padres organization from 1988 to 1990. In 155 games he hit .186 with 3 HR and 31 RBI.

The bookstore at the University City mall was a B. Dalton. Originally started in Minneapolis in 1966, the chain reached a high of 698 locations in 1994. However, declining sales hit the chain hard in the 2000s, and Barnes & Noble, which owned the chain by this time, began liquidating stores in 2009. The final B. Dalton closed in 2013.

Notable in the list of "Paperbacks Coming in June" is Postcards from the Edge, the first of several memoirs by Star Wars star Carrie Fisher.

  1. I remember going to B. Dalton's but I had no idea they were owned by Barnes & Noble. Cool
