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.
