POPULAR STORES NO LONGER AT CROSSVILLE OUTLET MALL

The Crossville Outlet Mall looks a little different these days.

As many residents of Cumberland County already know, the outlet mall was bought by Orion Investments of Tennessee and changed its name to Landers Crossroads in April 2022.

With the popular Buc-ee’s gas station adding more traffic to the mall next door, many residents of Crossville hoped it would soon be flooded with new stores and shoppers.

Landers Crossroads originally had plans to turn the old Vanity Fair Outlet store, which went out of business in December 2020, into a music venue known as the Old Gray Amphitheater which would partner with the one currently located in Monterey, Tennessee. However, sources tell us that the Tennessee State Fire Marshals office did not allow it to open as scheduled in December of 2022.

Many stores in one wing of the outlet mall were given an eviction notice, or were unable to renew their month-to-month leases.

We visited the outlet mall this week, to find the many businesses had already completely closed.

The Crossville Model Railroad Club has been in Crossville for 21 years and was unable to find any new space to relocate to.

Cheesecake Plus More was another popular store that has now relocated to a space in Grandview. They posted on Facebook that they will return to Crossville for Friday Night at the Crossroads on April 7th.

Sources tell us that the owners of the mall have decided to use that wing of the mall as warehouse storage. Other stores, salons, and restaurants are still currently in the mall.

The Mall Office is the only thing accessible on that wing for now.
