Marshfield Mall Update
Terry Linduski is the Mall Manager at Marshfield Mall. One of the unique things about the mall is that they do about 20 events a year, including craft shows, bridal fairs, farm shows, and a kids’ expo. Events have been a part of this mall since it opened in 1979. The heyday of the mall was in the 80s and 90s. In ‘93 the K-Mart in the mall was doing so well they added 30,000 sq. feet for a total of 90,000. In the last 20 years, big box stores like Wal-Mart have taken over, often not locating in malls. K-Mart closed in 2003, reducing foot traffic at that end of the mall which had a ripple effect on other stores. Steve & Barry’s took over the K-Mart space in 2008 & operated there for two years, but the company soon ran into financial trouble and the whole chain closed down. But now Furniture and Appliance Mart has come in, taking 50,000 feet. The prior owners added a food court, which is World Buffet now.

And of course the latest thing is Kohl’s. When Terry came to the mall in 2006, Kohl’s had already talked to them. So it took 10 year to make it happen. One thing making it possible was Kohl’s smaller store plan. They didn’t believe they could make their numbers with their standard size store.

Retail is only one part of a community, Terry said, but he believes having a mall is a real asset to the city. He thinks the downtown and the north end complement each other. They are continuing to upgrade the mall. A new sign should be installed this Friday.
