I’ve been in the mall since March 1st, but it was my first experience of a crabtree.
The crabtree, a giant crab, had been in an area of the mall that was closed for a year.
The mall was remodeled last fall to make it a more tourist-friendly area.
I was on the first floor of the new store when I saw the crabtree in the background.
It was a very busy day.
I walked into the crab tree and was greeted by a man in a suit and tie who said, “Hello, Mr. Crappy.
I’m the manager of this store.”
I was startled, and he went on to tell me the story of how he came to own the crab in his youth.
“I was a kid who grew up in Pennsylvania and played football, baseball and softball,” he said.
“And I used to have a crab in my house.
It had to be a good crab.”
He said he was able to afford the crab because he was a successful business owner.
He had been selling crab to people since he was in high school.
“People were getting in and out of the store,” he explained.
“They didn’t like the crab, they didn’t want to eat it.”
After he left the mall in 2015, he began selling crab at the nearby Del Amoo Mall, which he called the “crab heaven.”
The crab was a favorite among the local community.
People came from all over Pennsylvania and Delaware, many of whom he had made friends with over the years.
The local restaurant was called the Crappy, and the crab was one of the restaurant’s most popular dishes.
People were lining up to get crabs, and they were selling out of a week’s supply in less than an hour.
It is now a popular stop on the Delamos tourist trail.
“It’s one of my favorite places in the country,” he told me.
“That’s why it’s always the busiest and the most popular spot.”
He has been in a crab tree for over 15 years.
He bought the crab as a birthday present for his brother when he was 15 years old.
It’s a very rare thing to see a crab at a crab trees.
The Crabtree is also a favorite of some local businesses.
The owner of the local crab shop, Bill Jones, said the Crabtree has become a family-friendly place for his customers.
“A lot of people that come here for crab, you know they come to enjoy the crab and the food and the music and the dance,” Jones said.
He said that in the past two years, he has seen a significant increase in sales at his crab store, with a lot of customers bringing friends along.
“We have a lot more people that have been here for about 20 years,” Jones added.
“Now they come back and say, ‘It’s crab day and I want to come back again.’
It’s been great.”
Crappy is an excellent spot for crab-eating, too.
Many people in the area go to the crab trees for their crab feast.
The owners of the crab shops have also noticed an uptick in crab-diners.
“You’ve got a lot in the parking lot, so there’s not a lot for people to park,” Jones told me when I asked if he has noticed a decrease in customers.
He added that people have also been bringing their children along for the crab-fests.
Jones said he’s noticed a slight uptick in people wanting to come into the restaurant.
“There’s been a lot people coming in here to enjoy it,” he added.
Some of the customers also have been asking to bring their friends, and Jones has been welcoming of that.
“Most people don’t bring anyone over for a meal, but there are a lot that are interested in crab,” Jones explained.
It all started about three years ago, when a customer named Mike said he wanted to go crabbing and needed a crab that he could eat.
Jones and the owner of Crabtree, Mike Zalaszewski, said they knew they wanted to open the restaurant on the crab hill.
The first day they opened their restaurant, they were met with overwhelming interest from people wanting crab.
“After the first couple of days, I started getting calls from people all over the world, from around the world,” Jones recalled.
Jones told The Lad that he and Zalaseszewski met with the customer in person to make sure he had the right crabs.
“He was a customer for life.
He wanted to come in and see what he could get, and we knew we could not just do what we had been doing, we wanted to bring the best crab we could, because we didn’t know what we would get,” Jones continued.
“As the days went by, we started getting more and more calls from customers who were going to come and see
