Summit Park Mall owner says flood won't affect sale


Tonawanda News — He said it appears someone unauthorized entered the property and left the hatch open prior to the freeze. Though nothing was reported missing from the property, Huff said it was likely an attempted theft where the person found steel pipes instead of copper and left without anything of value.

But whoever did it left without closing the hatch and the damage was done.

“There’s nothing that appears to be stolen,” he said. “When I originally entered the property Sunday, I checked around everywhere. They’re steel pipes, not copper. So whoever did it may have broken in, seen it was a dead end and left the hatch open.”

As for the functioning tenants, management at Bon-Ton refused to comment on the matter because the flooding didn’t damage the store at all. Employees said the store had no issues with water pressure. Management at Sears didn’t return requests for comment.
