OUTRAGE: Town Center Mall Closes For Easter, Website States "Open"

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — In a major public relations problem for Simon Property Group’s Town Center Mall at Boca Raton (NYSE:SPG), potentially thousands of shoppers eager to spend part of Easter Sunday shopping were met by a tersely worded computer printout on the front door, stating the mall was closed.

Even with poor grammar, Boca’s Town Center Mall was unquestionably closed on Easter Sunday, despite its website stating the mall would be open.

This is in direct contradiction to the mall’s website which stated it was keeping normal hours.

A late afternoon visit to the mall yielded a well packed parking lot and shopper after shopper seemingly stunned as they walked to the front door, only to read the sign stating — in a bizarre take on the English language — “No Entry Beyond This Point Please and Thank You The Mall Is Closed.”

Its website says "open," but Boca Raton Town Center Mall was closed Easter Sunday, irking potentially thousands in Boca Raton.

It’s unclear where the disconnect started or who within the company is responsible for the bizarre sign. As of Sunday evening, no apology was posted to the Boca Raton Town Center Mall website.

It is unlikely the mall was closed out of respect for the holiday or those celebrating — Town Center Mall proudly advertised that it was open on Thanksgiving and all days leading up to Christmas.

This is the latest public relations problem for Simon Property Group and the mall. A police report recently revealed that their surveillance cameras have potentially significant blind spots throughout the mall parking lots.
