More store closures at Central Plaza in Lawton, OK.

If you haven’t heard the unfortunate news yet, there are more stores closing at Central Plaza in Lawton, Fort Sill. It seems that more and more retailers are leaving the old mall to open elsewhere or leave town.


Unfortunately, Central Plaza is quickly becoming a ghost town. There are more empty commercial spaces than shops, or so it would seem. It’s starting to look like a post-apocalyptic Hollywood zombie movie set.

Just recently, Champs and Footlocker closed their doors permanently at Central Plaza, adding to the empty spaces and echo chamber that was once a thriving mall. Soon there will be no more shops.

With Champs, Footlocker has permanently closed its doors at Central Plaza
