Remembering the Marketplace of the Midsouth

Friends of The Mall of Memphis


The Hernando-DeSoto Bridge at Memphis, Tennessee

When this site was brand spanking new, we were surprised to discover that there are a number of mall and retail history sites on the net. Who knew? These guys/girls are trailblazers in a niche you may not have known existed. Many have proved to be not only providers of interesting sites, but generous contributors to our tribute as well.

Steven Swain describes his site as mall and department store photography bordering on the obsessive. They don't come any better...


Dead Malls.com

Retail historians, Peter Blackbird and Brian Florence decided to take Pete's hobby and make it visible to the Internet.

Fascinated by the ever-changing face of retail, Pete has researched and learned as much as he could about the many facets of the retail industry. Having himself worked for Hills department stores during their transition into Ames, along with Brian who worked at a Caldor, as well as other various retail-oriented contacts, they find themselves captivated by the current trends in the retail industry, and have seen first-hand the demise of many of these great giants of retail.

Thanks to the power of the internet, we have been able to compile information from people all over the web, contributing invaluable information to our cause!

Deadmalls.com is a non-for-profit endeavor designed to promote the history of the malls as well as their nature, whether thriving or declining, and the impact of time and competition on these establishments.

Carolina Circle City

Thursday, May 24, 2007 The Mall of Memphis.org

I was doing some web surfing today and came across a website that is very much related to http://mallmemories.com.

It's a website fully dedicated to the Mall of Memphis. I still don't know what city that mall was located in. I was just kidding by the way.

Run by Doug Force, Mall of Memphis.org could be thought of as the equivalent of Carolina Circle Mall's Home of Carolina Circle Mall and Carolina Circle City.

I haven't really had much time to do a thorough examination of the website, but from what I've seen, it's awesome.

I believe in the same philosophy. People have always asked me why I love Carolina Circle Mall so much and why I even bother having a website/blog about it. Here's the answer. Carolina Circle Mall wasn't just an Ice Rink/Carousel haven full of stores, it was Memoryville, North Carolina! Mall of Memphis is Memoryville, Tennessee.

Carolina Circle City salutes Mall of Memphis, Mall of Memphis.org, and Doug Force.

Oh yeah, click here to visit the Mall of Memphis.
