Sadly the anchor from the mall was going to be part of redevelopment plan, but things obviously didn't work out. I'm sure this has thrown a bit of a wrench into the de-malling plans.
While I'm not saying this was the plan, I suspect the plans were to keep the mall corridor that led to Bon-Ton from the main doors as seen in the first picture. The corridors to the left for sure and possibly the right would be removed. I know the left is being removed for sure because of this:

|Ollie's took over the Label Shopper space and went beyond it into the former mall.|
I now leave you with look into what will soon no longer be a mall from Bon-Ton:
