Hickory Hollow Mall will re-open Saturday with new management, a new name, and a new direction.
Global Mall at the Crossings encompasses 617,000 square feet of retail space on 27 acres in Antioch.
More than 60 leases have been signed to fill the newly designed storefronts.
General Manager Ravi Shektar told Nashville's News 2 that the traditionally large spaces on the upper level have been divided into smaller units to accommodate and attract local entrepreneurs. Each set of divided units will reflect the diversity in the area, representing Asian, African, Indian, Latino, and Middle Eastern cultures.
The lower level will remain a traditional mall with stores like Foot Locker.
Some of the new additions to the mall include E Corral Western Wear, Variedades Suyapa, 7 Secrets, In Style, X-Treme, Moda, Vogue, Global Grocery (Indian) and Pretty Brows.
An estimated 20 eateries and stores will be open on Saturday, with the remaining tenants in place by the end of the month.
Highpoint Security will also be on site. The company occupies the space temporarily held by the Metro Police Department. Security personnel will also be on patrol around the clock. Additional security cameras were also installed throughout the mall.
The mall has been home to less than a dozen functioning stores since last June, leaving plenty of space for new developments.
