Parkway Place Mall announces web site
The new Parkway Place Mall web site, www.parkwayplacemall.com, is up and running.
Customers can log onto the site to check out a number of informational links regarding the new mall. Among those links is a store directory, upcoming special events, and mall news and job listings.
"The web site is definitely a useful tool for customers to utilize pre-opening information," said Sherri Williams, CMD, mall marketing director. "We are getting several calls a day asking for store listings and job opportunities. We are finally able to direct people to the site in an effort to keep the public informed."
Parkway Place Mall is set to open Oct. 16. After it's completion, the mall will have more than 650,000 square feet of space anchored by Parisian and Dillard's. It will have more than 75 small shops and a food court located on the former Parkway City Mall site at Drake Avenue and South Memorial Parkway in Huntsville.
