    Revival of mall in works for city

    By Latisha R. Gray, The Daily Reflector
    Longtime patrons of the Carolina East Mall remember elbow-to-elbow shopping when the venue was one of Greenville's hottest retail spots.

    Now, the mall is a mere shadow of its former self, with a number of vacant stores and limited customers. What was once the "place to be," according to some customers, is now a ghost town.

    An Ohio-based real estate development company looks to bring back the mall's heydays. Bear Creek Capital Co. is expected to purchase Carolina East on June 6, a spokesman said. The deal has been under way for some time. Bear Creek plans to build several freestanding retail stores and a theater and then demolish the old building. Construction should start after the Christmas holidays, Matt Daniels said.
