Goodbye Macys at the Mall of the Mainland in Texas City
I had a chance to visit this store in February of 2012 as the store was being closed. This was one of five Macy's stores closed to start 2012. The Macy's closing announcement came in the middle of a busy January for the mall. On January 5 the Macy's closing was announced, and on January 9 the mall was damaged in a heavy rainstorm with the Sears getting clipped by a tornado, the food court flooded out, and a part of the wall near the former Tilt collapsed. The mall was quickly cleaned and reopened after the storm. This is the third anchor to close at the Mall of the Mainland. JCPenney closed in 2005 and Dillard's closed in 2008. Currently the bank owned mall is for sale and is listed by Jones Lang LaSalle representing the lender. A new outlet mall is opening in October only two miles away from the Mall of the Mainland and will bring many new outlet stores to the area.
