Remembering the Marketplace of the Midsouth

Life Before The Mall of Memphis

Before the enclosed mall, department stores were the shopping experience in Memphis. Places like DixieMart and The Treasury were the K-Marts of the day.

Memphis was no stranger to malls before the Mall of Memphis. Southland Mall and Raleight Springs Mall (both still open) had been open for many years, but they were not nearly as BIG as the Mall of Memphis. The scale of MoM WAS new to Memphis and perhaps that is one reason why it's quick life and death and burial are both a source of interest and sadness for many (like you - you are reading this - a site about a building that is gone).
