The last few years have been pretty rough for the Valley View Center along Interstate 635 at Preston Road. Stores moved out and customer volume dropped -- a sharp contrast to the mall's heyday in the 1970s and 80s.
But if you go there now, you'll notice a very interesting trend. More than two dozen art galleries have filled the retail spaces, bringing a whole new kind of energy and atmosphere to the shopping mall.
FOX 4's Dan Godwin talked to Scott Beck, who heads the company that owns Valley View. He said the next couple of years will usher in some really big changes.
