An article in the Wall St. Journal suggests that Foothills Mall is in the category of malls that generate "sales per square foot of $250 or less".

According to a study of publicly owned malls, Foothills Mall is one of 84 malls that fall into the category of "dead malls". According to their numbers, three other malls in Tennessee fall into that category: College Square in Morristown, Hickory Hollow Mall in Nashville, and Raleigh Springs in Memphis.

I don't know if I agree with the WSJ's assessment. Foothills Mall has been very low key for years. I cannot imagine Blount County not having a Sears or JC Penney. I could be wrong.

You can kill it even deader...

Turkey Creek

"Then all the people from Townsend and Walland will move their shopping to Turkey Creek, too." Got news for you, they already have....Foothills has nothing to offer except a few restaurants and a couple of stores.

They lost me when the Corn

They lost me when the Corn Dog 7 closed.

Turkey Creek?

Finish that parkway and all their shopping will be done at the Walland Gap shopping and entertainment complex.


If I don't get some shelter
Oh yeah, I'm gonna fade away...

Maybe closer than you think now that Blackberry owns it.
