Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mall of Memphis was a shopping mall in Memphis, Tennessee, containing 885,627 sq ft of retail space and 5,564 parking spaces. The mall opened October 7, 1981, was closed December 24, 2003, and was demolished in 2004. Among other things, the mall was home to the Ice Chalet, Memphis's only public ice rink. The Mall of Memphis and the commercial area that developed around it prospered throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s. However, in the late 1980s and early 1990s, several deadly shootings and a rash of robberies occurred on or near the mall's parking lots. These events led to the Mall of Memphis developing a reputation for being unsafe and being nicknamed the "Mall of Murder" A study done by Rhodes College in 2006 shows the media's impact of giving the mall this reputation and also studying how the malls very name may have resulted in its death.show more
