Florence Mall officials on rumors: ‘We are not closing’

Rumors that the Florence Mall will close this spring have circulated on Facebook, prompting shares from Northern Kentucky residents lamenting the loss. 

But officials say the mall isn't going anywhere. 

"Florence Mall can confirm we are not closing. We are open for all your shopping and dining needs. Hope to see you soon and remember to Shop Local," Mall officials said in a Facebook post on Monday. 

According to the mall's website, 91 stores, restaurants and boutiques are still operating in the mall.

The Florence Mall lost Sears, an anchor store, in 2018. 

J.C Penney, which filed for bankruptcy protection in May, is one of the most at-risk retailers in 2021, according to USA Today. 

Macy's is also an at-risk retailer. The chain recently announced more closures, but the Florence location remains unscathed despite the Tri-County location closing.  

Other mall stores like Victoria's Secret and Express also made USA TODAY's list.
