Retail Row Chapter 2.jpg

Retail Row is an area on the Battle Royale map located at east coordinates G6 and H6, northeast of Lazy Lake and south of Dirty Docks. It a retail store complex with a wide parking lot and a residential neighborhood beside the commercial area that consists mostly of houses. In Week 10 of Season 8, during the "Unvaulting Event", the Volcano erupted, destroying the shopping district of Retail Row, along with Tilted Towers. A taco shop and the residential district survived the eruption.

At the start of Season 9, the shopping district of Retail Row was reconstructed with a futuristic theme and was renamed to Mega Mall.

In Week 2 of Season 10, Mega Mall was turned back into Retail Row via a rift beacon constructed in the area. Cube monsters from Fortnitemares have also inhabited the area. However the monsters can no longer be found at the POI.

Many of the houses at Retail Row can be found at different locations across the map.
