    General Growth in Chapter 11

    It is too bad an Iowa success story is ending this way.

    Ending? The company isn't dissolving...

    No, the company is reorganizing. But the success story seems to be dissolving.

    The good malls in town are GG, the ****** one's owner is still in the black. I guess if you dont put any money into your product you dont have this problem! I hope they reorganize successfully. Now that I have young kids I'm loving the mall parks


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Exactly. It sucks for a company to have to go in to Chapter 11 but that happens when you grow your company at a rate that it can't survive a recession.

    Plenty of companies have eventually come out of Chapter 11 and done good things.
