HOUSTON (KTRK) --Northwest Mall is closing all but five of its stores.
It was first reported in 2014 that the nearly 800,000-square-foot mall, which sits on over 50 acres of land near the U.S. Highway 290 and Loop 610 interchange, was up for sale.
A Northwest Mall spokesperson told the Houston Business Journal that the mall, which was built in 1968, will close all of the interior stores on March 31.
