Summary:
The last original building from the Dixie Square Mall complex – built as the outparcel tire/battery/auto center for the mall’s JCPenney. Renovated and used as another auto shop and Daewoo dealership later-on. Gutted by the time I got to it – but it was always locked when the mall was still standing, so it was still neat to finally see.

Status: ACTIVE; converted to The Entrance nightclub in 2016
