  2. The Riverwalk Marketplace (New Orleans) is scheduled to be closed and totally revamped as an upscale outlet mall -- http://www.riverwalkmarketplace.com/event-3. It will be interesting to see if this will take place as they are behind schedule in closing. However, all major retailers have vacated - GAP, Chicos, The Loft, Foot Locker, etc. Most food outlets have left also.

  3. Mall of Louisiana in Baton Rouge would make a good post.

    1. Yes it would be, for one reason or another I seem to miss the Mall of Louisiana every time I pass by Baton Rouge. Cortana Mall has changed so much over the years that I have visited there and passed up the Mall of Louisiana.

  4. Now that we are getting smartphone and iPhone savvy, I would like a list of the stores in the local malls that offer mobile coupons or barcode scanning for deals.

    1. I appreciate the request, unfortunately I just document malls and information about the events in the history of a mall.

  7. An update on Southwest Center Mall (Red Bird Mall) in South Dallas would be great, haven't been there since 2008.

    1. That is a place I will visit in the future. I know that Boxer took over operations recently at that mall. Boxer is responsible for the successful redevelopments of La Gran Plaza Mall in Fort Worth and PlazAmericas in Houston.

  8. Just a quick update on the Riverwalk Marketplace. It is finally in its final days before the remodeling into an outlet center. Only a few stores remain open -with the rest actively packing up their stores. The mall should be completely closed in a couple of weeks. Construction (destruction) has already begun, even with the mall open, with construction crews demolishing the interiors of closed stores, beginning at the entrance off of Spanish Plaza......

    1. Wow I wish I could make it down there to check that out. If you can manage to get some photos send them here and I will be happy to post them. That mall has so much potential and used to be such a great place to go. Hopefully they can keep a mix of local stores instead of the usual mall stores that most outlet malls have.
