The quality and selections have really dwindled over the years till there is not much point in going to this mall.

I was told recently that Oak Hollow Mall was sold to High Point University for a football field. Yes? No?

HPU has not bought the mall for a football field. HPU may never have a football team again because when they did have on years ago a team member was killed and they dont want to see history repeat itself

It may not have a lot of stores left, but, I have always felt safe shopping there. If the shoppers would just come back so would the stores.

I agree it was a pretty safe mall. But the stores would have to come back before shoppers would. That is why there are no shoppers b/c all the stores closed down or moved elsewhere

We can blame noone but ourselves for the problems at the mall. Since the beginning the great citizens of High Point did not support this mall so the owners stopped stocking the better items and gave them to the malls with more traffic. After all, profit is the name of this game. I was told that if it hadn't been for the Thomasville customers, the mall would have been sold years ago. If this is the case Thank you Thomasville. I urge the people of High Point and surrounding areas to shop the mall and we together can see this thing take off like a hot balloon.

I know that this isn't very helpful but my understanding of why so many stores closed in the mall was because, at one point, the rent sky high and the stores couldn't afford to stay. It just seems as though CBL would have better luck with Oak Hollow if their greed hadn't gotten in the way. I just hope that whoever buys the mall, they will consider putting into place things that will encourage people to bring business to the mall vs. become greedy and discourage business being brought into the mall. The community also has to support the mall. High Point, while it's a good community, doesn't tend to support a mall of this size because High Pointers tend to, for some dumb reason, shop in Greensboro and Winston Salem.

It would be a great place for a furniture mall but it would sure be a shame to not have a mall of our own. I hope that HPU doesn't get it because much of the space would likely be devoted to the students rather than the community.

I predicted the demise of the mall the first day it was announced. Aside from being a bad economic idea, it was infuriating that the city would trade dollars for watershed quality. The city of HP got a case of "eyes too big for their stomachs." They saw people who went to Four Seasons or Hanes and thought a new mall would draw us to shop in HP. The fallacy in that is that NOBODY shops THAT MUCH, OFTEN ENOUGH to support a mall in HP especially with the many alternatives available. The old Westchester Mall was adequate in size for a population with the demographics of HP and surrounding area; there simply isn't a large enough population to support a larger mall. Also, the mall was built exclusively for the North Side of High Point, whose residents have quick, easy access into major shopping arteries in GSO. Didn't turn out so well, did it? Bigger does not equal better. As for me, once the mall was built so far from the (formerly neglected) South side of HP, I just scooted down the highway to Four Seasons. Even with the Oak Hollow Mall, Four Seasons (in spite of sporadic security problems) had so much more to offer should I choose to need something special.

That's a crummy thing to say. Sounds just like something someone from Greensboro would say from a city that really couldn't sustain itself without people from "dumpy High Point." What a pea brain you obviously are.

It made zero sense to put the mall on the north side of High Point, making it even closer to Greensboro. If they would have put it on the southside they could have pulled not only from High Point, but more from Archdale, Trinity, Thomasville, Lexington, etc.

Good riddance.

It would have been perfect to keep it where the Westchester mall had been. I've always felt that that would have been a great location.

It is in a pretty bad location for a mall. But it'd be a great location for a football field. I think HPU is just waiting for it to go completely bankrupt, then get it for firesale prices.

As for the southside, can we get a Sam's Club or Cosco somewhere near the Fairfield/Main corridor?

I really wish they would .It would bring more business to the area
than the mall. No matter who buys the mall they'll never get the stores back that left,or any new name brand store to drive business like they need.
