This is an entrance to the Esplanade Mall in Kenner Louisiana. This is a two story mall anchored by Macy's, Dillard's Men, and Dillard's women. Mervyn's was an anchor but they closed several years ago. Not much has changed since my last visit in 2008, but there are several new vacancies. The mall is very much alive and well, but even some of the main parts of the mall have empty stores now.
This former Mervyn's is rumored to be torn down and replaced by a Target. It has been vacant since the beginning of 2006 when Mervyn's left Louisiana. The mall needs to be as aggressive as possible to get this spot filled. The former Mervyn's is aging, and some of the sidewalks appear to be sinking around the building (which is common in the New Orleans area, but a hazard).
Macy's reopened a couple of years ago, but eliminated their third floor. I also found it odd that Macy's put a new sign up and left their old signs intact.
