Orlando, FL – On Thursday, January 12, 2017, local media outlets are reporting that the Artegon Marektplace in Orlando is closing at the end of January. If you have ever gone to this unique place there is so much to see and do. It is a sad day to hear about the anti-mall place closing for good. This is your last chance to visit this place before it closes.
Upon further investigation into the closing of Artegon Marketplace, the Lightstone Group who owns this property has not posted any press releases and or a business closing notice on their website either. Stay tuned for more information. The only thing still on their website states “Much like the city itself, Artegon Marketplace offers Orlando shopping options that are equal parts eclectic eccentricity and beloved brands. Reel in the latest fishing equipment at Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World Orlando, grab a graphic novel at the second largest fandom store in the US, Gods & Monsters, or prepare for some beach bumming at the world-renowned Ron Jon Surf Shop. Your shop-hopping options don’t end there; Artegon Marketplace features Florida’s largest, and Orlando’s only, daily indoor artisanal marketplace with more than 100 artisans and craftspeople at work every day.”
Most of the stores in the marketplace are effective will be closing up their storefronts. Some of these stores may relocate in the same area. If is unknown at this time what stores will still be reopen for business at another location. The outer perimeter of the mall stores will still continue to be open for business. These stores are Bass Pro Shop and Cinemark Theater. It is unclear how long these store will stay open too.
Besides the variety of stores, Artegon offers great entertainment, Food Truck Fridays, restaurants, and much more. In the past years, Artegon has had high-end live concerts outside in front of the building.
Once the Artegon closes the building look for property management to release more information what they will be redeveloping the property. Some people in the hospitality industry believe this location could be sold and torn down for the next large theme park in the area.
