I hope Big Lots will relocate in Warren area, I hate the thoughts of driving up to Jamestown NY to go to the store there, I wonder why they could not move to Fashion Bug's old location, maybe a smaller store but they could down size some of the departments, the one in Jamestown is not that big.

Pirate, yea that would be nice but we all know that isn't going to happen! They drive big business away from this area! May as will draw people in to spend their money! The good paying jobs are gone and aren't coming back! Did you miss how those good jobs are breaking down the doors in the west end in those new buildings? I thought they were built for manufacturing?

It's time to put the mall out of its misery. Somebody get Tim King on the phone.

Sams, Bass Pro, Best Buy, Target, are all lower paying retail jobs and require people to spend their money. Either tear in down or sell it to a manufacturer who makes a good product and pays well so that people can have a real job in this town. Maybe the county jail can turn it into a holding/ rehab facility or something like that. Something that would create good paying jobs. SO SICK OF RETAIL THIS AND RETAIL THAT...BLAH!!!

Tear it down put in a wegmans, SAMs, bass pro, best buy, target, or a ton of others! So many options for that land! I hate to see Big Lots go but sure can understand why! I do hope they relocate in the area!

Greed is why all of these stores closed at the mall. They raised the rent so high that the stores just couldn't afford it. Just another tax write off to an out of towner who could care less about Warren. It's too bad. I remember when the mall was booming in the 80's.

He also is the type of guy who goes by other names. His real name is Mehran Kohansieh.

Google "Mike Kohan Mall" to see what the future will bring. I don't understand why a guy buys up malls and lets them rot.
