More Store Closings at Mount Berry Mall in Rome

A not so good trend is continuing with the recent announcement of two more stores leaving Mount Berry Mall.

The latest comes from GNC and Justice.

GNC has already packed up and closed, while kids based Justice has placed closing and sale signs in its windows.

Justice is part of Ascena Retail Group, which recently filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy.  Other stores in the brand include Ann Taylor, Loft and Lane Bryant.

Mount Berry Mall also recently lost Victoria Secret and JC Penny is in the midst of closing.

Mount Berry Mall is owned by Hull Property Group.  The organization recently spent close to $2 million for upgrades to the mall.  The upgrades included new carpeting, new lighting, paint, electrical and heating and air improvements.
