reported Friday that the Pines Mall would close on Sunday due to going into foreclosure. We have confirmed the Mall has in fact closed.

One question we have received in our newsroom regards the owners of Saracen Casino Resort possibly purchasing the property.

When reached out for comment Quapaw Chairman John Berrey replied simply:  “Not interested.”

Saracen Casion Project Manager Carlton Saffa also commented saying: “We’re not interested in purchasing the mall. Our focus is across the street.”
