Update on Middlesboro Mall sale and change of leadership
From WRIL -
Todd Routh with Todd Routh Properties has given us a release in regard to the sale and purchase of the Middlesboro Mall. He represents Monroe Realty Group LLC and states it is a family owned and oriented company.
With the purchase of the Middlesboro Mall (and two others) from Ershig Properties DBA Pinnacle Properties I, LLC Monroe will have grown their portfolio to more than 80 shopping centers, warehouse properties, and office buildings throughout Texas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Kentucky, and now Tennessee.
Monroe favors smaller markets where we can help revitalize the community. At Monroe Realty Group they look forward to getting acquainted with the property and the community. They are excited to bring to the community a pleasant shopping experience and best leasing value to the mall's tenants, and they expect great things from the Middlesboro Mall.
Charles Burchfield who had been with the Middlesboro Mall for over 36 years has stepped down as manager to further his employment with former mall owner Ershig Properties in another location. Long time officer manager Carolyn Widner has been promoted to mall manager and looks forward to serving in that capacity.
Todd Routh tells WRIL that while there have been a few personnel changes, he plans on bringing in more stores to the facility.
