SELINSGROVE — The Susquehanna Valley Mall continues to be listed on a sheriff’s sale scheduled for August.
The U.S. Bank National Association had filed a writ of execution in Snyder County Court of Common Pleas requesting the sheriff’s office sell the mall operated by Susquehanna Valley Mall Associates to recover $33,393,897.04.
The amount owed does not include court costs and 11.158% interest that has continued to accumulate since Feb. 7.
The sale will take place 1 p.m. Aug. 9 in the courthouse in Middleburg, unless a deal is struck with the mortgage lender or the mall files for bankruptcy.
A receptionist for the sheriff’s office confirmed Thursday that the mall is still scheduled for sale, which will take place in a courtroom to accommodate an anticipated large crowd.
The filing of a bankruptcy, the sheriff’s office website says, will automatically stay a sale, which would continue until the plaintiff obtains an order of court discharging a property from the custody of the bankruptcy court or until the bankruptcy court issues an order releasing a property from a sale.
The Susquehanna Valley Mall opened Sept. 26, 1978, with a ribbon cutting that was attended by hundreds of eager shoppers, elected officials, Miss Pennsylvania Charmaine Kowalski, Ron Paleo and “Zippy the Chimp.”
