In a Blade report on 1/22/05 this is what the owner of the Mall had to say. “Jeep is expanding rapidly in Toledo and they’re looking for locations for their suppliers. I’m hoping we can convert it to a type of a facility that will be beneficial for Jeep or its suppliers,” said Mr. Kashani, a California businessman who, with his partner, Sammy Kahen, bought the mall, formerly called North Towne Square, for $ 1 million in December, 2002.”
So Kashani & Kahen, what’s ya gonna do now? Oh! that’s right, your out in California, just sitting on your land investment because it’s clear you don’t give a hoot about the mall or the surrounding area. Let’s hear it for the absentee owners who are only looking to fatten their pockets. May the Bird of Paradise fly up your nose!
