WebsiteBeltway Plaza Mall
The Beltway Plaza mall is located in Greenbelt, Maryland. It was originally composed of a massive S. Klein department store separated by a large parking lot from an A&P Supermarket located in a strip shopping center along with a barbershop, single screen movie theater, and Drug Fair store. By 1972-73, a small indoor mall was created, situated between the strip shopping center and the S. Klein store, that included a 6-screen theater, steakhouse, a branch of George’s appliance store chain, an ice cream shop, and in-house catalog store. Within a few years of the S. Klein closing in 1975, the mall underwent major renovations. The renovations included an additional 8 screen cinema and a Giant supermarket that was added to one wing of the former shopping strip.[1] The renovation also enclosed the area from the original mall to the supermarket. The mall has 115 stores and restaurants and anchors include a Giant supermarket, Burlington Coat Factory, Marshalls, and Target.

S. Klein Store

On July 15, 1962, The Washington Post and Times Herald published a sketch of the 320,000-square-foot (30,000 m2) department store of the S. Klein chain, to be constructed in the Beltway Plaza Regional Shopping Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. At the time the two story and basement structure would be the largest Washington suburban department store and was expected to open the following Easter. Interestingly, Gov. J. Millard Tawes witnesses the signing of the 30 year lease (the store would last only 13) between the plaza developer and S. Klein.

The store opened on Oct 17, 1963.[2] The Beltway Plaza property is home to some perilous slopes that have periodically given way and forced closure of the store for a short period in 1966. During construction of the store, in December 1962, five men died and 11 were injured in a basement earth slide. [3] S. Klein was at Beltway Plaza until 1975, when the chain decided to close the store. The Washington Post of Feb 6, 1975 ( p. G14) reported:
S. Klein Department Stores, a New York retailer that was a pioneer in the discount business, is closing its two big Washington area stores within six weeks, industry sources said yesterday. Officers of the company, a subsidiary of McCrory Corp., refused to conform or deny the reports.

After closure of the S. Klein store, the building was split up to house multiple stores. A K-Mart occupied part of the store starting in 1976.[4] It is the current location for the Burlington Coat Factory, JoAnn Fabrics, and Marshalls stores at the plaza.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
