After avoiding a water disconnection this month, Chapel Hill Mall is now facing a possible power shut down if its bill isn’t paid by January 20th. Ohio Edison issued the notice to mall tenants.
About half the stores are occupied at the mall, where the sole anchor tenant remaining is JCPenney. It continues to attract customers like Kent State student Hannah Kurtz.
“I don’t know why [the mall] is going out of business. Maybe it’s not in the best area? I don’t know [maybe] they could remodel it and make it something else? I’m not sure.”
