General Growth Properties, the owner of the Maine Mall in South Portland, has filed for bankruptcy protection, which could be bad news for anyone who has ever tried to purchase underwear in the Old Port.
“Vigorous North” blogger Christian McNeil presented an even more apocalyptic vision for the property:
“The Mall itself will likely be sold at a bargain-basement price to satisfy General Growth’s jilted creditors. But the outlook for the neighborhood doesn’t look good. The old Circuit City, which has been abandoned for only a few weeks, already looks like a transplant from Chernobyl.”
Transplant from Chernobyl. You could say the same thing about the food at Sbarro.
