A spokesman for the new owners of Alton Square Mall says they are ready to get to work at revitalizing the aging property.  Hull Property Group of Augusta, Georgia, which has a track record of purchasing and rejuvenating similar properties, now owns the mall.  It owns about 20 similar properties, mostly in the southeastern United States.  

One recent study showed a large percentage of local shoppers would o across to malls in Missouri rather than shopping in Alton.  Hull Property Group Marketing Director Coles Doyle tells The Big Z they hope to change that.

Alton Square is now the property furthest north the company owns.  Its next closest mall is in Columbia, Tennessee.
