Amazon is reportedly planning to build a fulfillment center on the site of the now-shuttered Rolling Acres Mall in Akron, Ohio. The redevelopment plans are titled “Project Carney,” in an apparent nod to the company’s head spokesman. Rolling Acres Mall fell victim to declining shopper traffic and became a target for crime before permanently closing in 2013. Former tenants include Macy’s, JCPenney, Target, and Sears. Poignant images of the mall’s decline over the years have come to symbolize the era of retail disruption known as the retail apocalypse.
