Correction on the Little Caesars, when McDonalds moved into their Plymouth road location, they decided to close their North Campus location in Pierpont commons since most North Campus people drove to the Plymouth road location because of free parking. A Panda Express is now in that location, if the Pierpont Commons McDonald's is the one you are talking about.

The Taco Bell built a new building down the street, not sure what the old one is now

The Coffee Beanery was in Briarwood

When did the Old Country Buffet change? I went there with a couple of friends about 2 months ago, it was still the same name.

Don't forget Basken Robbins. They still have their Plymouth road location, but pulled out of their South University location because of competition. They were in that old historic corner building on the edge of the pedestrian mall. A cafe went in shortly after that was there throughout my freshman year of college. Something town cafe, can't remember the name. Now it's an Expresso Royale.

I'm not too sure about some of the ones with question marks. Maybe you can go to Briarwood's Website and download their mall directory to find what is there now.

That wouldn't work because I don't know where specifically the old Briarwood stores were; I got their listings from a 1991 phonebook.
