Mall Store Closes

By  | 

The company, which had filed chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2003, did not renew its lease at Bonita Lakes Mall in Meridian. The lease expired in December.

Mall officials say the space won't remain vacant. Marketing director Tommy White said FYE, or For Your Entertainment, will take over the space. He said it should be ready to open after remodeling.

"FYE is a really solid company, a strong company," White said. "It's one of the top in the nation and they're going to do a really good job. They're going to be a great addition to the mall. Just stand by and we'll have them open in a matter of time."

White said the new store should be open in August.
