City of West Frankfort Votes to Purchase West Frankfort Outlet Mall

West Frankfort — The West Frankfort Outlet Mall is set to officially become property of the city after council members voted to purchase the property at a meeting last night. The city had voted in August to buy the property from owners Desantis Properties of California for 1.8 million dollars and had a 60 day due diligence period before a final decision was made. City leaders say that some work will have to be done on the 25 year old building, but they believe that the purchase will allow new businesses to flourish in the city.
