The Marketplace coming to Savannah Mall

POSTED: July 20, 2009 5:09 p.m.

Savannah Mall announces The Marketplace at Savannah Mall, a new indoor shopping destination that convenes neighborhood-style shops with dazzling and curious wares.

Beginning with 90,000 square feet, which formerly housed Steve and Barry’s, The Marketplace at Savannah Mall will be the Coastal Empire’s largest, year–round indoor marketplace.   

“The Marketplace is an enticing concept that is working well in other cities,” said Chardell Steves, leasing manager.  

The appeal of Savannah itself initially drew the attention of new mall owners in November 2007.  They are betting again that Savannah style will entice out-of-town and local businesses into new space at The Marketplace at Savannah Mall.  

“Shop after shop, face after face, personal things matter to us in Savannah,” said Senea Crystal, marketing director at Savannah Mall. “Entrepreneurs who fantasize about control, independence and being in charge may come to us with shop concepts, such as aromatherapy, yoga, quilting, scrapbooking, gourmet foods or monogramming.  These are the little things we love in our everyday lives.  Rather than crisscrossing town, The Marketplace at Savannah Mall is congregating new shops and multi-generation businesses to deliver the ease and convenience of ‘get and go’ shopping.”

There is no predetermined list of new shops in The Marketplace at Savannah Mall.

“We envision it as a shopping village, a retail square inside the mall — a book shop, a garden shop, a gourmet food market, a shoe repair shop, a camera shop, a music shop, an art gallery and an Internet café,”  Crystal said.   

In 2005, began speaking of newfound entrepreneurs in terms of “minipreneurs, actually be(ing) chic, allowing one to think big while implementing small.”  

“At Savannah Mall, we want the shopper to have it all — the big department store and the small shop options,” Crystal said.  “The Marketplace at Savannah Mall is ‘retail, redefined.’  Who would not welcome the ease and convenience of making one stop for all the little things one needs or wants.”

On July 31, the owners of Savannah Mall are hosting an open house to introduce The Marketplace at Savannah Mall to perspective shopkeepers.
