I have the extreme displeasure of driving past McFarland Mall twice a day, and I can't be the only one who thinks this area of real estate is in dire need of a makeover. Here are 10 ideas for improving Tuscaloosa's biggest eyesore. 

  1. Just raze it to the ground
  2. Use it as a filming location for a post-nuclear holocaust action movie
  3. Blow it up
  4. Transport it, brick by brick, to the dang GARBAGE DUMP
  5. Raze it to the ground and build any or a combination of the following: Trader Joe's, Ikea, Whole Foods, Dave & Buster's, literally anything else
  6. Fill it with cherry bombs and set it on fire
  7. See if 100 dudes with power washers could blast it into the next dimension
  8. Raze it to the ground and build a new park
  9. Renovate it, I guess?
  10. Literally anything besides the current action plan

What are your suggestions? I think it's a shame that McFarland Mall is in its current state. Have you ever seen what the mall looked like in its heyday? It was awesome. I get seriously bummed out thinking of all the people who made memories in this space and now have to see it crumbling before their eyes.
