Southridge's Hallmark Not Closing, It Will Relocate Instead
Hallmark in Southridge might be closed temporarily, but a Southridge representative says they are working to find them a more suitable space. Mall representative also says there "a lot of moving pieces."
Everything left on Hallmark's nearly-empty shelves was 90 percent off Friday, but the store is not closing.
It was previously reported the store would be closing its Southridge location, but mall officials clarified Tuesday that the store will relocate, not shut down.
Southridge Mall media representative Les Morris said management is working with Hallmark to find "a right size, more suitable space."
Morris would not say if another business is moving into the Hallmark space, but more information information is expected next week. He said there are "a lot of moving pieces" in the mall right now.
Old Navy closed its doors Monday, and Kohls, Kay Jewelers, Vanity, Wet Seal, Rue 21, Maurice and Buddy Squirrel have recently completed renovations. Boston Store is undergoing an $8 million interior renovation with the help of a $3 million TIF district.
