Washington Prime Group plans to repurpose the 80,000-square-foot former Sears store at its Morgantown Mall in West Virginia as a logistics, distribution and fulfillment center serving 11 hospitals, as well as smaller clinics, in the WVU Medicine network, the state’s largest healthcare system. The project is part of Washington Prime Group’s Fulventory initiative, through which the company is adding logistics and warehouse space at its malls to support last-mile fulfillment, said CEO Louis Conforti. Anchors at the 532,000-square-foot mall include Dunham’s Sports and JCPenney. Ollie’s Bargain Outlet will open at the center soon.
