According to Scott Overby of Overby Inc. the mall was purchased by Emily Seiferth-Sanders.

The mall was sold for $10 million and ownership transfered on December 31st. Sanders posted an 8 minute video of her walking through the mall on Facebook, Friday morning.

She says that she has plans to restore the mall to it’s “original feel”. She plans to take away the outdated look and update the mall.

She also mentioned that the food court is coming back and several vendors have shown interest in store front space.

Sanders mentioned a plan to have studio apartments in the mall as well.

The Metrocenter mall is the largest shopping center in Mississippi. It was shutdown in 2018 after 39 years in south Jackson.

This is good news! Best of luck to her, hopefully, if she is resourceful enough to acquire $10m, she is resourceful enough to come up with a solid plan.

She was convicted of fraud in 2013, let's those days are behind her.

I hope she didn't scam someone out of $10 million.

I'm taking it that she wants to evoke the same feelings people had about going into the mall for the first time 35 years ago, but needs to modernize the look to create that atmosphere.

It's all about the feels.

That's my take. When the mall opened, it seemed very modern to shoppers.

Is this woman noted for her ability to rehabilitate properties, or is she just somebody out of the blue? Her track record with fraud doesn't sound all that great.

She's a crook, and nothing will happen with Metrocenter. Duh.
