Idaho's Karcher Mall sold, may be redeveloped

Karcher Mall was one of the first malls in Idaho, and for many years was the only enclosed mall close to Boise. Boise Towne Square's opening in 1988 took away a lot of business.

Nampa is an interesting market. Karcher Mall lost Macy's to a freestanding store (which has since closed) and JCPenney returned to Nampa (where it left Karcher Mall in 1988) for a new freestanding store next door to the new Macy's.

It's hard to say what the new big box stores will be. There is already a vacant Kmart and a soon to be vacant Shopko in Nampa.

Another article from the Idaho Statesman which mentions demolishing part of the mall:
