The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Wanna buy a mall?

There's a distinct air of bogosity to this eBay auction.

Still, that's a sort-of-plausible price tag, and, well, somebody ought to do something with it — though the lister should have noted the upcoming departure of Dillard's.

Update, 10 March: Ja'Rena Lunsford of The Oklahoman checks it out, and it's legit, although what's for sale isn't the entire mall itself, but the north wing of it, which used to be a Montgomery Ward store. (The anchor positions — Wards, Dillard's, Sears — are owned separately from the rest of the mall.)

That's kinda sad. I wonder if you can use Paypal?

Or green stamps?

I think it's a great idea. They may not sell the building from ebay but it has got alot of publicity from it, which just gives it more attention. I've always been a fan of Heritage Park Mall and I think now that a new owner has it, they are capable of making it successful again.
