Some people believe that Wal-Mart destroyed small town life, this is not the case. Mendenhall and hundreds of other small towns have slowly been deserted after the roads bypassed them.

Located on US Highway 149 which is the original route of US highway 49, it is slowly fading into the past. Many years before, the highway was rerouted to bypass small towns like Mendenhall to save time. There are the remains of a car dealership, a long abandoned Sunflower grocery store, and many more vacant buildings. Mendenhall's better days have passed into the history of the highway.

P.S. There is not a Wal-Mart very near Mendenhall, you have to get onto the highway and travel south to Magee MS a town lucky enough to have highway 49 pass a bit closer.
