Letter: A bad decision by the Grand Forks mall

So the Columbia Mall is basically steering four young entrepreneurs to close up shop because the mall management believes their shaved ice delights are damaging the flooring of a basically deal mall?

So the Columbia Mall is basically steering four young entrepreneurs to close up shop because the mall management believes their shaved ice delights are damaging the flooring of a basically deal mall?

If it wasn't for JC Penney and Scheels, the mall would all but be DOA. Did the mall management have the same concerns when the food court was a busy concern, can you remember that far back? After all, pizza, coffee, and other food items cause damaging stains, and then there is chewing gum. This is part of the risk/cost of running a shopping mall.

Is this a new way to chase tenants out of the mall, tell them that their products are damaging the mall, why not just raise the tenant's rents, again? It's obvious that Columbia Mall does not care about Grand Forks, otherwise it would not be a 100-acre almost vacant eyesore.

Perhaps the Grands Cities Mall should open its doors to these future business leaders. After all, there isn't any carpet to get stained.

Just when you thought Columbia Mall couldn't get worse, it does.
