The End is Near
This has been the closest mall to my house for the past 12 years and I have avoided entering it for the past 6 because it is so depressing. Sixty percent of the stores are closed and the abandoned feeling does not inspire me to want to shop. Plus it has become a haven for droopy drawer wearing teens and safety can feel a little squirrelly.
The sale is apparently set to close early next week – May 10th – and the City of Westminster has plans to develop the area into housing and urban type buildings. The news coverage can be found here.
I know some natives will be nostalgic about losing a part of their past, or outright angry, but in my opinion it was time 5 years ago and I personally am glad to see the area revitalized into an asset to the residents.
