Massive Brand Stores Are Now Closing At California Mall

Massive brand stores are now closing at a California mall, leaving customers disappointed and the location 75% empty.

Most stores in the San Francisco Centre mall have shut their doors in the past few years reportedly due to several factors, including rising crime rates, reports The-Sun.

The downtown shopping area has faced several closures with the mall currently at a 25% occupancy rate.

A mother and daughter, on a shopping trip to the mall, shared their negative thoughts on the situation, according to the MailOnline.

Tara Button explained how the mall had drastically changed since her last visit in 2019.

“Five years ago, this place was thriving,” she said.

“It’s a bit of a shock, it’s very sad.”

The pair also complained about the area surrounding the mall which they said they had to walk through.

“We were scared which bothers me,” Button added.

The mall has been plagued with store closures as five retailers left the premises in January alone.

These stores include J. Crew, Adidas, Lucky Brand, Aldo, and Madewell.

This mall’s 25% occupancy rate is vastly low compared to the 93% average across the United States.

The San Francisco Centre also faced a major shake-up last summer when its former operators, Westfield and Brookfield Properties, handed back the retail space to its lender.

“For more than 20 years, Westfield has proudly and successfully operated San Francisco Centre, investing significantly over that time in the vitality of the property,” the company said at the time.

Westfield also described “challenging operating conditions in downtown San Francisco” leading to a decline in sales and footfall.

Wade Rose, the president of the business advocacy group Advance SF, told ABC News that several dynamics were to blame for the challenges the mall has faced.

Rose added that crime made up “part of the narrative. It isn’t the full narrative.”

A massive restaurant is now closing all its locations, leaving customers upset and confused, sources report.

JR’s Hometown Grill & Pub had several restaurants in Michigan and they were particularly known for their burgers.

The chain’s owner, Robert Loudermilk, blamed the closure on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, rebuilding staff, increasing costs, and decreasing sales and revenue, according to MLive.

“I am thankful to all the wonderful staff and friends for the support over the years and always tried to be a positive impact on each community we were blessed to be a part of,” the owner said on a social media post.

“For the last year and a half, I have solely taken upon myself the financial burden of the business.

“The inability to secure long-term capital has forced this decision on me.”

This chain had locations in Adrian, Tecumseh, Milan, and Brooklyn, which were all in southeast Michigan.

The branch in Adrian has been open for 15 years but will shut its doors in a few days, reports The-Sun.

The location in Adrian is set to close on January 28 and the other three locations closed on January 23.

Customers with gift cards have been informed that they can be redeemed at the Adrian location while it remains open.

Loudermilk told local news station WLEN that he was upset to close his restaurants and for the dozens of employees that had worked there.

Customers and locals were left devastated by the news with many taking to Facebook to share their thoughts.

“They was always busy when I went there,” one person said.

Another diner also shared why they were shocked at the abrupt news.

“Wow… well, this is really disappointing,” another former customer said.

“I thought they were doing well… the place was always packed .. i always enjoyed going there and the food was good.”
