Union Station

Union Station is a shopping mall in Union City, southwest of Atlanta along Interstate 85. The name was changed from Shannon Southpark Mall in 2007, after new ownership and renovations came in 2006. A previous renovation was done back in the late 1990's.The mall opened in 1980 as Shannon Mall with anchor stores Sears, Rich's, and Davison's. Mervyns joined the mall in 1986. Mervyns became JCPenney in 1996. The mall has gone through several changes and is currently seeking new tenants. With only two anchor stores the mall is still operating. They have added a few small stores and the mall is a free Wi-Fi hub.Noteworthy former decor that were unique to the Shannon Mall (prior to the closing of many stores, and the name change to Union Station) were the decor theme, especially in the food court. Unfortunately much of the malls original beauty is gone, and only a few slight reminders remain.Near the food court main entrance once existed a large multi-monitor display showing mall related advertisements. Currently, there are plans to create Mall TV for the mall to provide original programming for mall patrons. As of right now, the screen airs sporting events and local television programming when it is working. Additionally, in one wing of the mall existed a large metal sculpture of a clown on a unicycle, animated and positioned below one of the ceiling skylights. The sculpture has not been cleaned in years and is showing signs deterioration. The former music that played in the mall hasn't been on in years and the mall is often quiet.Notable features include the in-floor dark brick water fountains, now drained of water and non-operational. Also, the former game room (located on the left, near the food court entrance) went through several renovations before being closed and reopened as a restaurant. The restaurant changed concepts twice before closing. There are talks of another restaurant coming to fill in the vacancy. Currently this portion of the mall is very scary and is often referred to Silent Hill, there is large holes in the ceiling and unsettling signage, including a large dinosaur head, stored in the empty store fronts.The Shannon Mall (Union Station) is visible from north & south-bound lanes of interstate I-85. Another unique characteristic is large boulders placed within the front view area of the mall, located near the south-bound exit ramp which provides access to the mall entrance, currently covered with spray paint and litter, was once very majestic looking. For the past several years, the empty anchor stores have boarded up and broken out windows. Much of the parking lot is in dis-repair.The mall is a "dying mall" similar to other malls in Georgia which were formerly popular before economic changes & strip development in the community. What was once a middle class area, is now very low rent and the locals are very low income. The majority of the business comes from locals utilizing the food court. The former "anchor" stores (Davison's/Macy's and Mervyn's/JCPenney) have closed and are empty, leaving the majority of the mall parking lot empty & unused. The mall has a very run down appearance and many locals question it's safety. It's popularly referred to as a haunted house thanks to its worn down and unwelcoming appearance. Macy's (former Rich's) and Sears, however, continue to operate at the mall.To combat the dying mall status, a new management firm was selected to handle day to day operations of the mall. The new management company developed partnerships with local businesses, recruited event organizers to host events within the mall and brought in 40 new tenants. The management company is currently seeking to find new anchor tenants to fill in the vacancies left by Maxx-Fun and the old Macy's. Management also is seeking to refill the food court with eateries after being dealt several blows with notable eateries such as the departure of Chick-fil-A, Buffalo's Cafe and several independent storefronts. The management is also known for being deceptive and wont actually repair the malls problems. As it stands, the mall is run down and empty. Local residents often worry about the safety and any health codes it violates. The former popular and very nice mall, is now a run down and in shambles. Residents of the surrounding area often worry about crime at the mall, it is common belief that the mall is closed, due to it's appearance, despite remaining open.While many of the recognized national chains moved their locations to Fayette Pavilion, Camp Creek Marketplace or Arbor Place Mall, several independent retailers are occupying their positions.
