Reaction on Facebook has people wondering how long before Lakeview Square Mall is only a memory in Battle Creek.

  • No surprise honestly. Malls are becoming something of the past since now most people use websites like eBay and Amazon
  • What is left in that mall?
  • If the whole mall dont shut down already. Aint point of ot staying open [sic]
  • well not going back there. That was the last store I went to. Good thing we'll have crossroads
  • That store holds some of my best memories... by far my absolute favorite place to have worked during my high school/college years. BOOOOO CLOSING
  • Not surprised, the store turned into a junk novelty store in the last few years. Nothing what it used to be!
  • Only reason I go to the mall is the movie theater
  • That mall is a dead mall sadly. It's not what it once was. So no surprise fye is closing its doors there. Will miss them. i hate online shopping the back n forth to get a none damaged product, the high shipping, the wait. Etc
  • Bye bye, brick & mortar- hello, click & order

The store has not given a definite closing date on their Facebook page but is offering 30-50% off everything.
