Florida – Cordova Mall’s $11 million makeover is nearly complete, and store managers Jordan Gibson and Chris Belew are convinced the improvements will please shoppers and shopkeepers alike.

“I think the renovations are awesome,” said Belew, co-manager of Journeys, a shoe store in the mall. “While the construction was going on, it got pretty dusty in here. But I think what they did is really nice, and I think most people will like what they see.”

Gibson, also a co-manager of Journeys, believes the makeover of the mall by owner Simon Properties “will bring in more business.”

Candy Carlisle, the mall’s marketing manager, said renovations are about 85 percent done. The final major phase – a new circular food court that looks a little like a spaceship taking off – is scheduled to open in stages between Sept. 19 and Oct. 1.

“The renovations were needed, especially the food court,” said Toni Washington, who has managed a retail kiosk in the mall for the past 10 years. “I was never a customer of the old food court, but I’ve seen the new one they’re building and it looks outstanding.”

Shopper Quachelle Hestle said she liked the renovations, adding, “I think the colors and lighting are very calming and soothing.”

Among the new features are a center court, a central, carpeted meeting area that offers shoppers plush seating in a hotel-lobby atmosphere.
