If my memory hasn't completely failed me, I don't think that Davis-Kidd originally opened in Green Hills Mall, but rather on Hillsboro Road in a small storefront near, but on the other side of the street from Grace's Plaza.
Even then, D-K was special, with lots of room and places to sit and look through the books. The Grace's Plaza location was one of the best bookstores that I've ever been in, a literary shrine where one could spend hours and time seemed to stand still. Even though I'm no longer in Nashville, I hate to hear the news that such an essential part of Nashville history will be disappearing.
Man, even from as far away as here in WNY this is a bummer to hear. I had shopped at The Great Escape on Broadway since Gary and crew moved the store from an old house on Division, and I always thought it would be there when I visited Nashville. Good luck with the move!

Jeff, I'm sorry, but the purpose of legalized carry isn't to create a posse of armed "crimefighters," it is to allow people to protect themselves and their families from violent crime. The stats themselves show that legalized carry has not raised the crime rate, and only somebody who has never been in a position where defending themselves with a gun is necessary would so cavalierly describe legal gun owners as "freaks."
As for this idiot in Oregon, he is exactly that -- an idiot! The ONLY reason that you point your weapon at another person is if you are in immediate danger of death or bodily harm. Two petty criminals running off with a bag of cell phones does not meet this standard. The police were right in arresting the gun-toting fool. Civil society is based on proper respect for tools that are potentially deadly. You don't get drunk and drive your car into a crowd of people, nor should you fire blindly towards a fleeing car, no matter your intentions.
