‘A long time coming’: Old Provo shopping center coming down to make way for new development



PROVO, Utah— Provo Mayor Michelle Kaufusi has plenty of fond memories of the Plum Tree Shopping Center. The center, located near 2230 North and University Parkway, was once home a Shopko, Movies 8 and Carousel Ice Cream Parlor. She recalled a time when one child was upset he couldn’t join his siblings on a Scout camp adventure, and she took him to the theater for a $1 movie showing.
