Orchards Mall management eyes new name, redevelopment plan that includes hotel

  • 3 min to read

BENTON TOWNSHIP — Changes are on the way at The Orchards Mall, owners have promised.

While the Benton Township shopping center was dormant through the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, new management was creating a redevelopment plan that would change the layout of the building.


The former JC Penney store at The Orchards Mall is shown this week. Mall owners have proposed a hotel for this end of the mall, which has seen its number of storefronts dwindle to just 10 over the past few years.


The remains of the Carson’s sign is pictured at the former store, located at The Orchards Mall in Benton Township.
