Don’t get too exited, it literally is just that – a tease.
In the gap between seasons two and three of Stranger Things, a new mall was built in Hawkins: the Starcourt Mall. It’s where kids, adults, and teenagers alike can try on clothes at the Gap, buy books and albums from Waldenbooks and Sam Goody, and eat ice cream at Scoops Ahoy Ice Cream Parlor, where Steve Harrington works.
It feels like a legitimate 80’s mall commercial, and kinda makes us nostalgic…
Also…if you’re wondering how they did this:
They took over a real semi-closed mall called “Gwinnett Place”, and in this bonus video – someone got to walk around and film the set(skip to 1:34) which was apparently a crime scene a few years ago.
