Chesapeake Square Mall is closing

Chesapeake Square Mall will be sold April 21 after falling into foreclosure. While Chesapeake’s city manager told WAVY that this news is probably a blessing in disguise, he said this is part of a larger trend of malls around the country struggling and shuttering. WAVY reports that Chesapeake Square Mall had long been facing financial problems, including losing tenants like Macy’s and Sears.
