Harrisburg Mall to expand with 10,400-square-foot building


Harrisburg Mall owners are putting the finishing touches on a plan for a 10,400-square-foot "outbuilding" in the mall's massive parking lot.

The building will host "six tenant suites," said mall director Bill Russell, and cater to shoppers who want to make quick purchases and get in and out fast. As for potential tenants, "we’re going to give them a viable location" to be successful, he added.

The building will be at Paxton Street and Mall Road, near the Applebee's restaurant. Building plans are expected to go before the Swatara Township commissioners in August.

“We have very strong interest in four of the six (tenant spots) already and we haven’t even built it yet,” Russell said.

St. John Properties Inc. and Petrie Ross Ventures purchased the mall in 2012 and promised a multimillion-dollar investment in upgrades. Since then, the company added new signage and a more accessible main entrance and demolished an unfinished space left by the previous owners — while attracting a few new tenants, including 2nd & Charles.

Russell said construction of the new building will begin "as soon as possible." He was unsure of the costs since there is no property to purchase and construction is done "in house."

Financing for transport trucks
We Buy & Sell Used Trucks!
We will work with you one on one to help you retail or wholesale your trucks. (We have many references). We only need you to send us the specifications as well as pictures of the interior & exterior of the truck(s) and let us go to work. All we ask is if there are any issues with the trucks please inform us. It never hurts having another salesperson working for you for free. The way we get paid is we add $1,000 to your bottom line price. When we receive a lead, we call and email you with the personís information. You then will set up a time to show them the truck or trucks. If they buy from you, we will invoice you for $1,000. Itís that simple!

We can also locate used trucks at fair prices. We call on 7,000 companies throughout the USA every 2.5 months and do come across fair prices.

We want to thank you again for the opportunity to work with you and your company.
