Arvest inherited the shopping center in 2014 when it acquired National Bank of Arkansas, which had foreclosed on it.
The property, which includes the 1.8 acres of the shopping center and another 1.8 acres of undeveloped land, was appraised for $585,000 this year.

The apartments appraised at about $250,000 this year.
Scott Bryan Nelson incorporated 4G Property Management in 2017. Nelson also is the registered agent for 4G Property Management.
TCB Investments was the seller, having earlier on the same September day paid Harding University Inc. $1.1 million for the apartments. In 2017, the Juanita Nichols Trust and the Otis Nichols Trust had deeded the apartments to Harding University Inc.
It was at least the third time in the past two months that the Nichols trusts had deeded property to Harding, which eventually sold it to TCB Investments.
The first transaction was in August for the 28-unit Powhatan Apartments in Sherwood. TCB Investments paid Harding $675,000 for the apartments.
Also in September, TCB Investments spent $1.1 million to buy three multifamily homes in Sherwood.
Each one was about 2,000 square feet. The duplexes were 3 and 9 Laramie Drive and 29A Laramie Cove. Each was appraised at $113,000, making them valued at $339,000.
Brian Teeter is president of Turnkey Properties in Memphis and Little Rock, which uses TCB Investments as one of its buying entities.
The most recent transaction with Harding contained properties from the same trusts, Teeter said.
"Instead of it being one property, it was a group of 11 different duplexes, triplexes, four-plexes and one six-plex," Teeter said. "So it was a package of small multifamily."
Before Teeter closed on all of the properties, he had some properties already lined up with buyers, including 4G Property Management, which bought the six-plex, Teeter said.
"We’ve sold eight of the 11 buildings," Teeter said. "It’s considered a double close, basically, where we closed and immediately turned around and resold them to new buyers."
