Spring 3-1980


The Dizengoff Center was Israel’s first mall and was built over a period of eleven years, from 1972 to 1983. The first stores opened in 1977 and today it has a total of 420 sores. The Dizengoff Center is partly blamed for declined business on nearby Dizengoff St., an area that was once compared to the popular avenue in Paris, France named Champs-Elysees.
