MALL OF MEMPHIS opened in October 1981, with Penney's and Dillard's as its department store draws. By the time of this site plan (1983), aWilson's Catalog Showroom and Thalhimers had also been added to the mall as third and fourth anchors. A fifth department store, shown here as "Anchor 5", was never built.
