For some people, they remember their childhoods and teen years at River Falls Mall in Clarksville. Because it was a two-floor mall with a traditional mall on the first floor and an arcade on the second floor. However, the River Falls Mall was always more popular among teenagers than money-spending adults, so, in 2005, the mall was changed. It is now a collection of big box stores. Across from Green Tree Mall, River Falls Mall originally opened in 1990.
The restructuring happened over a decade later, in phases. The site of the former traditional mall is now home to a handful of big box stores, including the following:
Dick's Sporting Goods - A sporting goods retailer selling a large selection of sport offerings. Customers will find equipment, apparel, footwear, and more. They have what you will need for most sports, including basketball, yoga, swimming, ice skating, bowling, and more.
Old Time Pottery - Closeout pricing on home and outdoor decor. Customers find furniture, kitchen items, decorating supplies, and more. Could be on your list if you are someone who loves to spruce up your space or are in need decorating items for any of the holiday seasons.
