Remembering the Marketplace of the Midsouth

These guys are still around! They usually go by EB Games these days, but in the Mall of Memphis Glory Days, this store on the ground floor was unique in Memphis. The original store was quite small by mall standards - perhaps only 30 x 40 or so. There was only room for a a few floor racks and whatever shelves could be mounted on the walls.

A former Mall of Memphis EB employee has left a detailed history of the store on the VisitorStories page.

This was a great place to buy games for Atari 2600 game consoles, and I believe my Commodore VIC-20 and its peripherals (a little cassette tape drive and a dot-matrix printer) came from there as well. --BJN--
