Weren't they supposed to start working on the new mall over the summer? I work out of town so I might have missed something about this. Anyone know any updates?

I haven't heard what's up with the renovations, but like him or hate him Bruce Burrow put Indian mall out of it's misery when he built the new mall, let the old mall suffer and sit there as a huge eye sore . . . then went in and scooped up all that prime real estate for penny's on the dollar so he can build another mall and play his existing tennents off each other . . . pretty shrewd. You would think though that will all that business savvy he'd come up with something other than Cara-Land, that's just an awfull name I think.

I heard they were going to tear down and rebuild the old mall -aruond-Sears and that it would remain open during it all.
What I'm wondering is--what're they waiting on??? I thought they would have already started by now.

Womack was doing nothing to improve Indian Mall. They obviously had plans to close it when they went forward with the now defunct Southern Hills Mall on 49S.

As far as Indian Mall, I thought that all remaining leases expired this October (or was that LAST October?).

Perhaps we'll see activity there soon.

And the name? Naming it after (2) surrounding roads is lame:

Caraway + Highland = Caraland (UGH!)

It would have been better if they switched it around:

Highland + Caraway = Highway

Still silly, but better than Caraland!

I had heard that Kmart and Sears were both moving into a plaza together.

I'll 2nd that!

I was a little disappointed at some of the selection in the Turtle Creek Mall. I thought they could've done a little better, but it's still an improvement from the old Indian Mall. Hopefully we'll get a regular Limited also

I get my insurance from Farmer's. It's in the old mall building. I asked Rodney Hannah (the insurance guy) what was happening with the building and everything. He told me that he didn't know. This was just after Dillard's left and they closed the mall entrances, except for Sears. So I don't think anything is finalized yet.

I'm hoping they DON'T get a Sephora. I love makeup and can't afford a Sephora in town! lol!

I like the name Caraland...maybe you should talk to B.B. and apply for a position in his marketing dept. I'll bet you've got some really great ideas for him.
