Back in the 1970’s to 80’s, Riverwalk Mall was once the “Holiday Mall.” Then it was renovated after the 1997 flood. Although the outside hasn’t changed much, it still has the jagged siding. Now it's home to River Cinema 15, Hollywood Heroes, and Knick Knack PaddyWacks, just to name a few stores. Image found in A Meeting of the Reds: East Grand Forks 1887-1987, Volume 2. Page 744. Stores may come and go, but this small mall may yet last a little longer.
