    Not a surprise – it lasted far longer than I expected given the weak economy here.

      > It won’t last. Best the rest of the stores move somewhere else. Malls are dead anyway. How about a Sam’s Club.

        Does the MD phase II allow the mall to open?

    I’m sure all the excess retail space in Lavale will have no effect on developing retail space in Cumberland

    CCM has been on life support for ages. I remember it back in the late 70′s and early 80′s, and it was a zoo. Now, even the crickets have abandonded it. As much as I hate to say it, JC Penney pulling out may be the death knell. I don’t think Walmart and a handful of boutique and specialty stores will be enough to keep it afloat.

      > I agree. Besides the keep it closed folks are hiding in their basements being the Red Forman crowd from that 70s show celebrating while drinking and smoking marijuana with their tin foil hats on. They made sure no one can go out and have jobs to keep a JC Penny in business.
