Pay/Half, a discount clothing store in Regency Mall, is closing its doors as the store has several signs in its windows announcing a closing sale. As with many other store closings, Sean Phillips, regional marketing manager for CBL & Associates Properties, told the Journal Times  that the store closing provides the mall with “a great opportunity to enhance the offerings at the center by re-energizing the retail mix and bringing in stores that are new to the center or the market.” CBL & Associates Properties owns Regency Mall. Bruce Kleiman, vice president of administration at Pay/Half, said the closing date has not been set, according to the story. A large number of stores remain empty in the mall as several other stores have left — including Radio Shack, Deb, Vanity and Aeropostal — over the last several months, which has been part of a national trend. JC Penney is expected to close its doors on April 30. But Learsi & Co., the company that bought the JC Penney building, plans to divide the space into three to four stores.
