Merchandising meccas and other commercial curiosities. Our exhibits range from the early 20th to early 21st centuries.
Upon its completion in 1988, the 1,007,000 square foot HAMILTON PLACE was Tennessee's largest mall. It would hold this distinction for 9 years. By the time of this 1993 plan, a J.C. Penney had been built. Two anchors had also changed nameplates. Loveman's was in operation for -maybe- a year before being rebranded by Proffitt's. When Proffitt's bought Tennessee Hess's stores, in October 1992, a plural Proffitt's mercantile was established.
