SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) - Scranton’s troubled downtown shopping mall could be sold at sheriff’s sale within three months.

A complaint filed Friday in Lackawanna County Court says the owner of the Mall at Steamtown has defaulted on its mortgage.

Court documents say the property could be sold at a sheriff’s sale June 10.

Al Boscov, chairman and chief executive of Boscov’s department store, the mall’s sole anchor tenant after Bon-Ton closed in January, says he is interested in bidding on Steamtown.

He says the mall will be open as usual through the foreclosure process.

Mall occupancy stands at about 65 percent.
