Marquette Management, the new operators of Granite Run Mall, paid a visit to a Middletown Council meeting to share their plans for turning the mall around. This news was met with much enthusiasm from council members and residents. Middletown Township and the Rose Tree Media School District rely on the mall for a good portion of their tax base.
Marquette Management stressed Granite Run Mall is here to stay. The company is committed to filling empty stores, making the mall more attractive, more secure and returning Granite Run Mall to its prominent place in the community. When the forty empty stores are filled, it will add four hundred new jobs. Marquette has eighty prospective tenants they are vetting to fill the empty space.
Marquette representatives will return to council in two months to update them on their progress. We give Marquette Management two Roy’s Rants thumbs up for riding to the rescue and having a solid plan of action.
