Despite a number of vacancies at the site, the management of the Woodland Mall is optimistic as it fights to increase occupancy.
"As the manager and as I speak with the owners, we want this mall to succeed," said Michelle Barton, manager of the Woodland Mall, in a recent email interview.
"The mall is not closing nor are we looking to be sold," she noted later.
"We understand that there are some vacancies here at the mall, in which every day we work diligently to try to fill them either with national or local tenants. We continue to keep the square footage pricing comparable to our surrounding areas and local area."
On a visit to the mall on Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year seemed to have brought out a number of patrons. Parking lots there were populated with hundreds of cars, and anchor store Elder-Beerman bustled with customers. The interior of the mall also featured numerous shoppers, as well as vendors' tables set up throughout the facility.

PORTAGE - Concerns about how the upcoming widening project on Interstate 75 could affect traffic on Ohio 25 will be the main topic at tonight's village council meeting.
"This meeting is more to keep a line of communication open," said Portage Mayor Mark Wolford this morning.
A third lane for I-75 is to be constructed starting in the spring as part of a $3 billion investment of Ohio Turnpike funds into the state's transportation system.
The $196 million I-75 widening plan will extend from Findlay to the Toledo area. The project has been moved up more than 13 years ahead of its original start date - it was originally to begin in 2027.
An Ohio Department of Transportation event this summer indicated that at least two lanes will be kept open on I-75 throughout construction, with most of the work taking place in the median.

It's becoming clearer how Wood County's general fund will be spent in 2014, as those in the commissioners office work to develop next year's budget.
Commissioners reviewed 2014 appropriations last week and will discuss the matter again Dec. 17.
Requests from county departments totaled $47,740,797 but were reduced by nearly $10 million as items were slashed from the budget, shifted to permanent improvements, made smaller, or put off until later. Half of the reductions come from the elimination of a $5 million expansion of the booking and medical areas at the county jail, requested by the sheriff's office for several years.
"Everybody has been very reasonable with their requests and what they are looking to spend," said Joe Fawcett, assistant county administrator.
