It sucks that they got rid of the Hallmark store.

As a former Old Navy Employee, We were not allowed to talk about the closing. The Mall did not want to get rid of Old Navy, but we could not come to an agreement so Gap Inc. Decided to close Old Navy. This Old Navy was the most profitable Old Navy in south eastern Wisconsin. Just 2 weeks after closing, The Mall officials and Gap Inc, settled on a agreement. and Old Navy was to come back to the mall. Many people lost their jobs, including me, due to this dumb agreement they could not settle down on before.
