According to this story in U.S. News & World Report, Hickory Hollow is among the country's most endangered malls:
Hickory Hollow Mall, Nashville, Tenn. (82 percent; $187). Dillard's has left, and other departed tenants include Linens 'N Things and Steve & Barry's, two of the biggest casualties of the recession. Two of four anchor slots are vacant, and the theater recently switched from first-run movies to late-run discount flicks. With a lack of retailers, the mall may convert some of its space to office use. One new tenant: the local police, who recently opened a recruiting station at the mall.
See Hickory Hollow's celebratory walk down the runway to accept the award here. And didn't they mean to say "most endangered (and dangerous) malls"? Judging from the fairly frequent reports of crime in the mall area, perhaps the police recruiting station is a stroke of genius!
