A strip mall that had trouble attracting customers taking the first step toward a long-hoped for second chance.
The Nebraska Crossing Mall will soon be a thing of the past.
Demolition crews began taking down the old structure and will soon be building a new mall on the site.
Located off Interstate 80 and Highway 31 outside Gretna, a new $70-million mall will replace this one.
It is hoped that nationally known stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Nike and Polo will help attract new customers.
Some of the cost of the new mall will be paid through sale tax incentives already approved by Gretna voters.
