We never talk about this place much, anyone know if they will ever fill the void of the old Stein Mart with a real retailer?

Wasn't that a Service Merchandise or Garfield's at one time?

If memory serves correctly , Service Merchandise was located where Old Navy is today. I think Steinmart's predecessor was a smaller JC Penney before it moved to the west end, but I may be all wet on that. I've never been much of a maller.

The Old Steinmart location is for the most part, vacant, during Hoildays, they have set up a couple of temporary stores (Halloween, Eskimo Joe's, etc')

While the space is a little large and the mall doesn't have the right number/types of stores, an H&M would probably do really well considering the demographics of Norman.

I worked at the Norman mall for 3 years - it seems as if people from Norman mostly avoid the place. The weird thing I noticed is that actually sees alot of patronage from the exurbs to the south of Norman. Many people are from Blanchard, Paul's Valley, Purcell etc frequent the mall. Like most other malls, it seems to be dying a slow death. They want outrageous rent prices. Our store was 970 sq. feet and rent was around $6000/month. Our district included stores mostly in the Dallas area, and parts of Kansas. Our rent was by far the highest and we had the lowest number of customers in our district.

Who owns this mall?

We go there on occasion, specifically to Dillard's. Wish that particular store could be expanded or relocated.

GGP owns Sooner Mall. They also own Quail Springs.

sun and ski sports is awesome. it will be a great addition to the mall and to the area. it should do very well.
