Shop Your Heart Out! Glendale Galleria To Be Renovated
Shoppers who have long sought one, gigantic fancy place to spend their money in Glendale may now rejoice: the Glendale Galleria is set to be renovated. The Glendale News Press reports that General Growth Properties, the corporate owner of the Glendale Galleria, was going through a bankruptcy last year that prevented it from renovating at the request of one of its anchor stores, Nordstrom:
Nordstrom “felt it was very important to their business to have a renovated Glendale Galleria,” [General Growth chief executive Sandeep] Mathrani said in a conference call with investors. But General Growth was not in a position to invest in the 36-year-old shopping destination.
Nordstrom was then purchased by developer Rick Caruso, who owns Americana (twist!). Caruso tells the Times that he plans to incorporate Nordstrom into an Americana expansion set for 2013.
