According to a quick post from WABI TV-5, the old Macy's location at the Bangor Mall is about to get a new tenant. Macy's pulled their store out about a year ago, as have many others in the mall in recent months. The mall has been seeing more tenants moving out than new ones moving in, so it will be nice to see one of the former anchor locations getting some new blood.

Furniture, Mattresses, and More will be taking over the spot, and according to the Bangor Daily News, leaving their store at the Airport Mall, currently called Discount Mattress and Furniture. The owner hopes to bring their products to a wide demographic of shoppers. That kind of traffic could be a real boost to an otherwise ailing commerce facility.

There is no information yet as to when they will open their doors in the new location, but keep your eyes peeled. The mall has easy access and ample parking. Hopefully in the coming months, more local businesses are able to follow suit and help rebuild the area.

Granted, we live in an order-everything-online society, but this could be a good sign for helping get the whole shopping area out there to get back on track. Shop local!!
