Dixie Square Mall

JC Penney Court

 

The furthest store bay on the left side of the concourse was where the Blues brothers came crashing into the mall through the Toys R Us. The Penney's sign was swapped for a Jewel sign in the movie.

 

Closed in 1978, the mall became famous in the 1980's Blue Brothers movie where they crash through a Toy's R Us and drive through the mall concourses.

 

The mall faces an uncertain future and has had a series of start-stop renovations. Asbestos abatements were completed recently which explains why the mall is so gutted from photos in the earlier 2000's. The accidental demolition of one of the anchor tenants also threw another wrench in the plans.

 

Despite tough times in Harvey, there is some new development surrounding the mall property.
