New plans for Redding's Mt. Shasta Mall don't include Sears

It may be the end of an era for Sears ‎as owners of the Mount Shasta Mall make way for newer, fresher tenants.

It may be the end of an era for Sears ‎as owners of the Mount Shasta Mall make way for newer, fresher tenants.

Sears was one of the original anchors when the mount shasta mall opened its doors in 1975.

But new plans filed by Rouse Properties who owns the mall don't appear to have the department store chain included.

The new plans include breaking up the current store into about 6 smaller storefronts.

“Currently it's about a 99,000 square foot building,” Hellman said. “And they want to downsize it to about 72,000 square feet, and that space would be divided into roughly six different tenant spaces.”

Sears stores nationwide have been on the decline for years with the company closing several of its locations across the U.S.

Mall goers say they're not surprised.

They say the department store is somewhat of a relic.

“The last time I went into Sears, I'd say it was like probably two years ago,” mall employee Efrain Marin said.

Shoppers say they're ok with the store closing if management brings in newer, fresher tenants.

“A Nordstrom,” Marin said. “And then I've heard other people say Forever 21.”

Hope Valles shares that sentiment.

“I think Hollister might be a good one,” Valles. “Chik-fil-A restaurant, Mimi's Cafe, El Pollo Loco.”

The owners of the mall also plan to build another multi-tenant building on the corner of Dana Drive and Hilltop Drive which would house about three tenants as well as a drive-through restaurant.

Hellman says it's part of a nationwide trend of malls adapting to changing market conditions to stay successful.

“So it seems like in this case, the owner has a pretty good indication of what the market is demanding at this time at this location,” he said. “And they have a good plan to prevent the vacancy from causing any issues down the road.”

If all goes according to plan, the project should be completed sometime next year.

Mall management was unavailable for comment.

But the project manager says he thinks people in Redding will be very happy with the list of tenants they have lined up.
