The saga of Eastland Mall continues. Today, it was announced operating hours were being cut for the interior section owned by Glimcher Realty Trust. The venerable white box mall will be open from 11 am to 7 pm on weekdays and from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturdays. The interior stores will be closed Sundays. The three anchor stores, Dillard’s, Sears and Burlington Coat Factory will not be affected and will keep current hours.
In yesterday’s Mint Hill Times, we reported Dillard’s had already closed. The store was supposed to close this month, but officials decided to postpone the closing for one more month.
