The Berkshire Mall has seen trials and tribulations over the last couple of years and it seems that the trend is continuing at a rapid pace.

According to a post on's Facebook page, apparently, power has been turned off throughout half of the Berkshire Mall. What that means is anybody's guess, but the question on everybody's mind has to relate to whether this is the beginning of the end for the Lanesborough based shopping mall.

The Berkshire Mall has seen major stores close, or on the way to closing, over the last couple of years, including Best Buy, Macy's, JC Penney, Sears and most recently, American Eagle.

The story of the mall's recent woes has been a sad one. The Berkshire Mall has been host of many major events for the radio station over the years, such as Malloween, the Berkshire Home & Garden Expo, the Mall-I-Day Madness game show, as well as multiple Take Home a Highlander live broadcasts.

Malls across the country have experienced hard times, some of those have thrived by evolving into something fresh. Whether or not this is trending in the end of the Berkshire Mall, rather than stay negative, let's focus on what can be done to make the space, possibly, even better.
