Woodbury purchasing property north of University Mall

Even with two anchor stores gone from University Mall, Woodbury Corp. is still purchasing property, including some homes, just north of the mall. University Mall general manager Rob Kallas said the purchase was a way to square off a portion of the parking lot that narrows in that spot. He also said the mall has considered that purchase for a couple of decades. A portion of 1100 South will be closed, and the rest will be made into a turnaround for vehicles. The company is looking for replacements for Nordstrom and Mervyns. Daily Herald
