Randall Park

A majority of Randall Park Mall, once an iconic shopping mecca in North Randall, is about to be demolished.

The developer of the property, the Industrial Realty Group, confirmed the news to NewsChannel 5 Wednesday.

“There is strong demand for industrial space, and the location of Randall Park Mall is good,” said Stuart Lichter, chairman and president of Industrial Realty Group.

Lichter said an industrial park will be built where the former mall stands now. Everything but the Sears building will be torn down in the next three months.

“Unbelievable, I can’t believe it,” exclaimed Robert Moss, a Cleveland resident. “I used to shop there!”

Moss was saddened to hear the news. He said he enjoyed shopping at May Company, JC Penney and Higbee’s department stores.

“It brings tears to my eyes,” he added. “I hate it, I hate it, I hate that it’s happening.”
