location concept

. The Johnson City Proffitt's was already operating under the dual-location concept and this gave the company three stores in the same mall. The former Hess's store (now home to Forever 21, formerly Goody's Family Clothing) which housed the Men's and Home Store was vacated and relocated to the former Belk site along with the Children's department. This move created the largest Proffitt's Men's Store in the company and allowed the Women's department its own store. The former Hess store in the Fort Henry Mall in Kingsport (Kingsport, Tennessee) was transformed into the largest Proffitt's Home Store, with all other departments remaining in the former Parks-Belk location. Proffitt's would later open stores in Spartanburg, South Carolina, Morgantown (Morgantown, West Virginia) and Parkersburg, WV (Parkersburg, West Virginia), and they would eventually build a new store at College Square Mall in Morristown, Tennessee. frame right A McRae's Department Store at the Dogwood Festival Market in Flowood, Mississippi (Image:Mc Raes Dogwood.jpg) '''McRae's''' was a mid-range regional department store chain founded and based in Jackson, Mississippi, with locations in Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, and Florida.
