1977: Backstage is added as a Young Men’s Fashion Shop.

1980: The Shopping Center is expanded to include the shops which currently house Complete Physique, Natural Nutrition, Republic Finance and Cajuns Guns and Tackle. The Shopping Center is named for the College Park Subdivision located directly behind.
