What used to be the busiest outdoor mall in Perrysburg, Levis Commons, is now practically empty.
The movie theater used to be bustling with guests, so much so that one would struggle to find a parking spot anywhere. Since all movie theaters and stores were forced to shut down in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, the parking lots have not had a single car parked in them.
I remember how busy it used to be, at all hours of the day, and the amount of people outside - kids playing by the fountain, friends sitting outside by Starbucks, and families walking about or shopping at one of the many stores available.
It makes me sad, seeing a place that was once swarming with visitors so empty. But, I remain hopeful that things will go back to normal eventually, and that people will start coming and going through all our stores again.
