Sanders was also the founder of Piggly Wiggly grocery store, a first supermarket chain but as he could not stay in the Pink Palace the fast growing city changed the site into a complex of attractions, together with the Sharpe Planetarium and an IMAX theater. The exhibits organized at the Pink Palace are theme based and themes vary from dinosaurs to the Civil War and the early Spanish explorers to the evolution of therapeutic exploration in Memphis. The displays also include a hand-carved minuscule circus, vestige, a replica of the first Piggly Wiggly and an emaciated head. It is a must visit for the whole family.
