St Ann has a news conference scheduled for Wednesday to announce a developer has been selected for the troubled Northwest Shopping Plaza. By Lakisha Jackson
On Wednesday officials in St Ann plan to announce a developer for Northwest Plaza.
The shopping mall that was once a popular destination has been in decline for a number of years and now it's the hope of St Ann that some of it's successful retail past can be brought back. Like many cities, money is at the heart of the matter because a declining shopping mall also means declining tax revenues.
Now that Macy's has left, the only anchor store left is Sears, and Mayor Gary Guittar believes the new developer will bring in a new anchor store that can spark the comeback that Northwest Plaza needs.
