Towne Square Mall to hold post closure liquidation sale
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Weeks after the official closure of Owensboro’s Towne Square Mall, people have a chance to have their own piece of Owensboro’s past.
On Friday and Saturday, the mall will be hosting a liquidation sale. Things like the mall’s Christmas decorations are up for grabs, as well as fixtures like food court tables and other furniture.
CEO of Gulfstream Commercial Services Ed Ray says forty years of odds and ends, all have to go somewhere.
“Over the years, of course, as stores have moved out, they’ve left behind a lot of things, fixtures and racks and things like that,” said Ray.
Thousands of items are up for sale Friday and Saturday, and Ray says some of them may be surprising.
“We have a whole section that is kitchen materials,” said Ray. “We’ve had different restaurants and different small food vendors over the years.”
While a number of display cases, furniture items and some more practical items were left behind, Ray says some of the items are more nostalgic.
“This is the performance stage that has been used for years in the mall, and anyone watching this may have been performing on the stage or watching a child on the stage,” Ray explained.
Years of other memories, sit awaiting sale in the vacated mall.
“Even these shopping carts that used to take your kids and your drinks around the mall when you did your shopping are also for sale,” said Ray.
Ray said another familiar childhood staple is also up for sale, the brown stuffed bear that sat next to Santa in countless holiday card photos.
“Sadly for those of us that experienced the mall, it’s time to have those with a new home,” Ray said.
Gulfstream employees say they’ve donated Santa’s old chair to be featured in the Owensboro-Daviess County Christmas Parade for years to come.
The doors will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.
