Remembering the Marketplace of the Midsouth

Mall Wall Come Down

These pictures show in graphic detail the impermanence of the mall. In part you see the store facades and tile floors that had graced that spot for 22 years. In part you see the sun of an outside world. The last standings of many a childhood memory - in excellent shape yet of no value. Still others show the view through the fence at the end of an era...

New Demolition Info: The mall was demolished in a sandwich type way. Meaning that the mall was being torn down from the west and east ends at the same time until they came together. The demolition started with JC Penny and the original Dillards and moved left/right from there. This means that the food court and Service Merchandise was the last area to be demolished.
