Shop operators at Accra Mall have threatened to close their shops on Thursday, October 24, 2019, due to poor management and high rent.
They said that the managers of the mall charge exorbitant fees but fail to maintain the facility. The washrooms are not properly maintained and a year after the collapse of the ceiling at a part of the mall, management is yet to complete its repair.
They complained that the scaffolds which have been brought on-site for the repair works are scaring people away. This has led to low patronage of their products and they now find it difficult to pay the exorbitant fees charged as rent. They pay between 430 and 450 cedis per square meter.
In retaliation to the behavior of management, the shop operators have threatened to close down their shops on Thursday to show their displeasure towards management.
