Today's post highlights DeSoto County, MS, retail.
According to the DeSoto Times, Conn's Appliances has purchased the entire former Super Kmart land - officially named "Stateline Square Shopping Center" - and will construct a new, 40,000+ square foot store, its third in the Mid-South and "big news for the...revitalization of economic development...[in] the original part of [Southaven]," according to the city's mayor, Darren Musselwhite. No word yet on when the construction will begin, or what will happen to current tenants Burlington, Home Décor Liquidators, and Bargain Hunt. Current square footage totals over 170,000 square feet, and the parking lot is comically larger than the customer base, so Conn's very well could build its new store separately from the former Super Kmart and leave the operating businesses untouched, aside from now owning their land. In any case, count on your local flickr team to keep you updated!
...wow, do I make us sound like a news organization! This photo has been cross-posted on flickr.
