According to Washington Business Journal (and tweeted out by city council member Justin Wilson), Alexandria’s only shopping mall, Landmark is closing at the end of this month:
Another big milestone in Landmark redevelopment as Hughes has now purchased the Macy's site and closed the Mall. https://t.co/aM7kIXY5cT

Macy’s said it was going to close their store recently. Sears may stay open, but any expectation that it will be around by the time Landmark is the new open-air town center is not based in reality. Realty?
Of course, the anchor store for Landmark Mall was Chik-fil-A in recent times.
Nine years ago, I blogged “the only way to save Landmark Mall is to destroy it.” We’re going to find that out.
