Polaris Fashion Place - in words...

"Busted" by security at Polaris Fashion Place 

Wordle TM

"Unauthorized scavenger hunts or unauthorized photography"

No I was not conducting a scavenger hunt authorized or unauthorized at Polaris Fashion Place Mall.   I was taking photos.  The very polite  security manager said no one can take photos for security reasons.  To paraphrase, his next remark... they can't just restrict the terrorist from taking photos, therefor they must restrict everyone from taking photos.  

I did not see it posted anywhere at Polaris (I was outside in the Lifestyle Center not in the enclosed mall) but I do find it online after being told.

I was taking photos of the fountain, a restaurant that is opening soon, a sculpture.... Boy I have lots of previously taken pictures to delete... a sculpture in the banner of my ActiveRain blog needs the far left obliterated. 

I decided the pictures are there, they have been there.  They are NOW pixelated, except the banner.

Polaris Fashion Place was the Columbus mall that was targeted by terrorists... or that's the way I remember it.  Seems others remember it as Easton or Tuttle....

Even before that ...  The Polaris Fashion Place Mall which opened in October 2001 was linked to terror. A Columbus Business First article quoted the Manager of the Kaufman's store  that we did not have to succumb to terror... shop!  How a $10 bar of soap strikes a blow to terror by Dan Crawford and Kathy Showalter of Business First-Columbus  | September 28, 2001 |

"The Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and the United States' subsequent march toward a war on global terrorism haven't stymied retailers' plans to be ready for the opening of the 1.5 million-square-foot Polaris Fashion Place on Oct. 25."

The manager of the Kaufman's Department Store at Polaris Fashion Place when it opened in 2001 is quoted in the Columbus Business First article. Kaufman's is gone, in it's place the Lifestyle Center on the southeast corner, where I was told I could not take photographs.  The department store manager is quoted:

"The more we can keep our life normal, the better we are," said Pedicini. "We have deadlines to meet. As much as possible, we're meeting those to get ready to open."

The $10 bar of soap is a reference to another store that was in Polaris Fashion Place mall in 2001 when it opened.  Luxury soap would save us from terrorism. 


I've pixelated previous Polaris Fashion Place post's pictures for their protection:
