Shoe Department to Close in the Schuylkill Mall

As the uncertainty of the future of the Schuylkill Mall after the purchase by new owners grows, another store has announced that it will be leaving the mall.

The Shoe Department confirmed to us late Wednesday that the store will close March 5th.

All product of the store is reported to be transferred to their Shamokin location.

Arby's and the Totally Twisted Pretzel Bakery closed this week as well.

A meeting was held by Northpoint with the current tenants of the mall on Wednesday, and while tenants would not comment on what was talked about at the meeting, all of them did stress that they are concerned about the future of the mall.

The Republican Herald is reporting that the sale of the Schuylkill Mall to Northpoint will be final February 28, 2017.

Northpoint did not return our calls or e-mails.
