South Side Mall is an enclosed shopping mall in South Williamson, Kentucky, on U.S. Route 119. Anchor stores are Peebles, Sears, Shoe Show and Tractor Supply Company.[2] The mall is also home to South Side Theater.

History[edit]

David Hocker and Richard E. Jacobs group developed the mall in 1980. Original tenants included Kroger/SuperX Drugstore, Kmart, and R. H. Hobbs department store.[3] Dawahares was also an anchor store. By 1983, R. H. Hobbs had closed and been converted to Watson's,[4] which in turn was sold to Peebles in 1998. The Kmart, later the site of Magic Mart, closed in 2002.[5] Dawahares is now Shoe Show.

Magic Mart announced that it would close the South Side Mall store in mid-2016.[6]
