The new food hall at Rosedale Center has closed "effectively immediately," with the mall planning to bring in a "new concept featuring local vendors."
The shock announcement was made on Tuesday morning, with the mall's Revolution Hall having only opened to the public this past fall.
Operated by East Coast company Craveable Hospitality Group, it hosted a series of vendors serving a variety of food styles, including New York-based PieCaken, Saltbrick Burger, Oceantail, and Canal Street Noodle Co.
But now Rosedale says that Revolution Hall will close immediately as it brings in a new food hall "featuring local vendors and new experience," with Craveable no longer operating the facility.
At this stage, there is no confirmed date for the opening of the new food hall, nor have any vendors been announced for it.
"For us, Rosedale Center acts as an idea incubator, and a retail experience laboratory. Our customers have come to expect unexpected retailers, dining, and entertainment from us. In closing Revolution Hall, we will now be able to satisfy the demand for an engaging customer experience," said Lisa Crain, General Manager of Rosedale Center, in a news release.
"We are excited to develop an innovative experience that celebrates our local food and beverage community that we know our guests will love."
Rosedale Center opened Revolution Hall to much fanfare in the fall, which was part of a wider, multi-million dollar revamp of the Roseville shopping center.
Malls have been making efforts in recent years to respond to changing consumer tastes by offering more dining and entertaining options to complement retail stores, amid a wider shift from consumers to online shopping.
