All that is Left of Coliseum MallI took this picture in the new JC Penney parking lot.

Former JC Penney (Hampton, VA).Everything was sold and moved out in early August, and the new JC Penney down from it was opened in late August. This one will be torn down. After this is torn down, the only building standing from the old Coliseum Mall days will be the Macys.

KFC Demolition Coverage

When we first moved to Franklin in August of 2005, we ate at this KFC/Taco Bell a couple of times (mom was craving tacos for a week, so that’s why I say “a couple of times”) and this joint was so.nasty. A new KFC/Taco Bell will be put up in its place.
