Retail growth exploded in the 1990s, due to the construction of the Wolfchase Galleria, which was then the largest retail center in Shelby County outside of Memphis. Today there are more than 1,200 businesses and more than 19,400 employees working in Cordova.

Cordova residents enjoy biking, running, horseback riding and fishing at Shelby Farms, one of Memphis’ largest parks. Annual events include the Cordova Crafts Fair and the Delta Fair and Music Festival.
