Last call for Eastland Mall
Posted on 9 Jun 2010 by Christian N. Phillips
In 1975, Eastland mall was the biggest and best shopping center in North Carolina. After 35 years, Charlotte is loosing one of its malls at the end of June. It has been rumored about for a while now, but now we finally have a date.
The 80-acre land holding the once thriving fashion spot will now be vacant. There are no plans from the city or potential buyers to re-build. Concerns about security loom, now that such an empty building will be left unattended.
When one door closes another shall open. Let us hope for something bigger and better than Eastland Mall in the future. Charlotte has a good 3 malls. Perhaps one more with a different variety of stores could help.
