Well, I guess we all saw it coming. It's too bad...but no one wanted to shop there anymore because of the gang activity and those people only wanted to shoplift, so there was hardly any money to be made.

I'm just wondering how in the heck is Heritage Park Mall still open?? Half of the mall is dark all day long and there are only a couple of crappy stores left besides Sears. I guess Sears is keeping it open.

Growing up in Chickasha in the 70's and 80's and going to "The City" always meant a stop at Crossroads Mall. If I was nice and had all my chores done I was given $5 and allowed to go to Le Mans and ride the bumper cars and play video games. Alas, the last time I was home I asked my sister if she ever went there and she said it was nothing but a gang hangout and no one went there after dark. So I say so long old friend. I will always have great memories about "Crossroads"

you people just wait a while and a lot more malls will be declaring bankruptcy. then as the economy gets worse and the commercial property failures start hitting the banks with zero balance. Our economy will then get worse. In other words more people on unemployment and hunting jobs that are gone and not coming back. See you cashiers and store workers in the unemployment line.

Ex-President Bush said" The economy is good" Really? With closings of
AT&T( Lucent), Deyton Tires,G.M. Shepherd Mall,Montgommery Wards,
Threatened military base closings,even,during the Iraqi War,It was only a matter of time before this mal went under! Is North Park Mall next?

I am in total agreement with night owl whooo.
This is what happens when the Government borrows money from foreign banks and lenders. Those banks and foreign lenders funded the second world war and Hitler at the same time. It's time to get the U.S.,to drill,drill,drill for oil. Bad management and waste by big company and loaning institution's CEO's and foreign outsourcing of U.S.jobs are also the main reason,the economy is failing.We paid for the rebuilding of Iraq, hmmm! Maybe we should get the rebuilding money,reimbursed from Iraq,since they reported having 85 or so, billion dollars in profits from oil revenues?

This mall was doomed long before the economy took a dump. Now you need to worry about which mall the little thugs who ran crossroads into the ground are going to invade. A retailer can only survive for so long when little gangsters and wannabe's steal more than the annual sales. Would be a great place for a warrant sweep.

yes, dealing with the root of the problem for a change would solve half the problem.

IbenThinkin, I hope it never happens to you, but if one of these thugs that you seem to want to dismiss so lightly were to break into your home and steal your big box item, you'd probably sing a different song. It's a horrible feeling to work so hard for something then just have someone take it from you.
