FERGUS FALLS — WestRidge Mall, a mainstay in Fergus Falls since 1978, will go up for auction Dec. 9-11 with a starting bid of $700,000.

Ten X Commercial recently listed the mall, which was originally anchored by Woolworth's, JC Penney's, a Red Owl grocery store and Herberger's. Dunham's Sports and Dollar Tree are now the mall's main anchors with a Home Depot nearby.

The mall is 32% percent occupied, Greater Fergus Falls said on its website.

The mall has more than 222,000 square feet with an additional 6,000-plus square feet in an outlot building.

Greater Fergus Falls CEO Annie Deckert said the property is a phenomenal opportunity to buy a underperforming asset with "very real potential to see huge future gains under a well-capitalized group with experienced management."
