9. Tennessee Flea Market Closes
- Tuesday, July 19, 2011
The Tennessee Flea Market, the largest indoor flea market in Tennessee, closed its doors Sunday afternoon, leaving about 300 vendors without a place to market their products. The property managers called a meeting over the weekend and told vendors they must have their products out of the building by 5 p.m. Sunday, July 17, said Tiffany Greenlee, owner of The Candle Bakery and a vendor at the market.
The Small Business Chamber, some of whose members are vendors at the market, posted on its Facebook page Sunday that the initial manager had stolen $200,000 from the business and made other poor business decisions. The SBC also reported investors lost more than $700,000 and cannot continue to operate the business.
The vendors are being forced to leave the market even though some have paid rent through the end of the month.
“We all had paid rent for the month of July, so nobody received any of their money back. And for the ones who hadn’t paid, they were holding their stuff hostage until they paid, even though they were going to vacate,” Greenlee said.
One vendor who preferred to remain nameless said it was a good opportunity for small business owners, but he never wants to be a part of that situation again.
“It was pretty devastating for a lot of us,” Greenlee said. “It was like an incubator for small businesses to have a place to get started, and some vendors had to just pack up their stuff and leave, not know exactly where we were going to go.”
The Tennessee Flea Market opened in April with 600 vendors inside the old Kmart building near Winchester and Riverdale roads. It was Memphis’ first flea market scheduled to be open every weekend of the year.
