|Home: BigScreen Journal - Kalamazoo, MI: Gull Road Cinema 5 Likely to Close Due to Sale for Impending Menards Store|
The Gull Road Cinema 5 in Kalamazoo, Michigan will likely close in the near future, as the building housing the theater, and the entire Gull Crossing retail center, has been sold to make way for the construction of a new Mendards home improvement store. Mlive.com published an article March 2, 2012 that mentions some of the details and the timing of the new development:
Menard Inc. is planning to build its third home improvement store in the Kalamazoo area on property now occupied by the Gull Crossing retail center in Comstock Township, which would be demolished to make way for the new store.
The Eyde Company, of East Lansing, owns Gull Crossing, at 5280 Gull Road. Mark Clouse, the chief financial officer at the Eyde Company, said he expects the retail center to be sold to Menard Inc. this summer for an undisclosed amount.
When Gull Crossing would be demolished and when the Menards store would be built is unclear. Gull Crossing was built in 1977 and was originally called East Town Mall.
Clouse said the name of the 224,732-square-foot retail center was changed to Gull Crossing in the early 1990s after the Eyde Company bought the facility. Gull Crossing's main occupant, a Kmart store, closed in 2005.
The remaining tenants include the Bamboo House restaurant, Bone Appetit Bakery, Crystal Nails, Graveyard Motorsports, and the Gull Road Cinema 5. Most of Gull Crossing is vacant.
