BENTON TOWNSHIP — Orchards Mall management have plans to rehabilitate the embattled shopping center, but local officials say what’s been proposed is far from becoming a reality.

Berrien County Commissioner Chokwe Pitchford, Benton Township Supervisor Cathy Yates, state Rep. Joey Andrews and Cornerstone Alliance CEO Rob Cleveland recently met with mall officials to discuss the future of The Orchards Mall.
