WAUSAU – The Victoria’s Secret will not reopen its Wausau Center Mall location, following its closure during Safer At Home. Victoria’s Secret will close 250 locations across the country — approximately 25 percent of their stores.
“As we have experienced the changing nature of the retail environment over the years, the Wausau Center Mall continues to change. Tenants, locally owned and national brands, are addressing their business models and making decisions where their resources are best placed in the COVID–19 environment.” said Dave Eckmann, Wausau Opportunity Zone (WOZ), Inc. president.
WOZ said in a release that it will collaborate with the city of Wausau and community stakeholders “to develop a comprehensive plan to reposition the Wausau Center Mall property to support the quality of life and long-term economic benefit of the taxpayers of the City of Wausau by maintaining an attractive and vibrant downtown.
“WOZ has engaged Chuck Ghidorzi to act as Managing Director, leading the planning process for redevelopment of the property. For more information on WOZ, please contact Chuck Ghidorzi.”
