Matteson officials ask court to close decrepit Lincoln Mall

August 8, 2013 (MATTESON, Ill.)

The mall opened in the 1970s and has been on the decline for years.

A New York investor purchased it last summer.

Village administrators say he's talked about making improvements, but none have been made.

Mall management has not returned ABC7's calls for comment.

If the mall closes, the Carson's store will not be impacted.
