Sources: Major Meeting Set Concerning the Mall at Steamtown

SCRANTON — Newswatch 16 has learned that a meeting is scheduled for 8:30 Thursday morning regarding the Mall At Steamtown.

Newswatch 16’s Stacy Lange has learned that the meeting will be between mall officials and representatives for mall owner Al Boscov.

So far at this point there’s no word on what will be discussed at Thursday morning’s meeting, but a source from the mall at Steamtown said it may go a long way in determining the fate of the troubled mall.

It’s been two months since Bon-ton closed, leaving the mall without one of it’s two anchor stores.

Rumors floated late last year that the mall was close to landing a big-time replacemen but that announcement never came.

A number of other storefronts are also empty.

But vendors Newswatch 16 spoke with Wednesday night showed Newswatch 16 a memo they received from mall management inviting them to a meeting with Al Boscov on Friday morning in the food court.

The memo promises the mall owner will have what’s described as “exciting” news for them.

Even though a public announcement is expected possibly as much as 24 hours before that gathering.

No one from the mall, or city hall is talking about what was discussed and efforts to reach Al Boscov Wednesday night for comment were not successful.
