Richland Mall announces major upgrade


CBL & Associates Properties, Inc., the owner and manager of Richland Mall, announced Thursday that it will undergo its first major upgrade in 18 years.

"We are excited to be here, and that we a lot of exciting things going on, but we are going to be here for a very long time as well," CBL & Associates Properties marketing director Todd Anderton said.

They unveiled a new logo and new renderings of the planned upgrade. To keep up with the  competitive demand in the area, management says the new upgrades are necessary.

"If we want to stay around for another 34 years, it is just part of the business. You have to update. You have to continually remodel, refresh, bring in exciting new things. For us it is just kind of the next step in the natural progression of keeping ourselves competitive," Anderton said.

Mall management hopes to give the mall a more contemporary design and improvements.

There will be updated mall entrances, new flooring and landscaping, as well as new seating areas in the food court and throughout the mall. The mall will also be getting a fresh coat of paint.

Management hopes these new changes will be appealing to not only shoppers, but future retailers.

"It is like anything else. If you repackage yourself in a new, fresh, and exciting way. You would certainly hope that it would create additional interest from retailer prospects, with shoppers, with just about anyone who might be affected by the mall," Anderton said.

The renovation project will start soon and happen during non-mall operating hours.

Management says they hope to have the upgrades done in November, just in time for the holiday shopping season.
