What’s Going to Replace The Citrus Park Mall Sears Store
The Sears at the Citrus Park Mall has been closed for about 5 years. It’s been talked about for years and now it’s official. We finally know now what is going to replace the former retail giant.
The Tampa Bay Times reports that the space will be the new home to Florida’s second “Elev8” location. The first one opened a couple years ago in Orlando. Elev8 replaced an old Sears store there too in the Seminole Towne Center.
Elev8 is a entertainment center filled with arcade games (180 of ’em), go carts, mini golf, climbing walls, virtual reality stuff, rope courses, laser tag, 12 bowling lanes… and even axe throwing! By the way, for you old school arcade game fans, they say there will be some classics in the arcade.
The Orlando location has a restaurant and bar too. The Times says the Citrus Park location will even have a beer garden. ABC Action News reports the Tampa location could open as soon by the end of the year. [Source: TBT, ABC Action News]
