ROTTERDAM, N.Y. (AP) - It’s a dark day for a Schenectady County shopping mall.

National Grid says it has cut the power to Rotterdam Square Mall because of unpaid electric bills. The utility declined to say how much the mall owes. It said in a statement Thursday that it has been working with the mall’s owners for months to set up a payment plan.

The mall’s owner, Mehan Kohansiek of Kohan Retail Investment Group, tells the Albany Times Union (https://bit.ly/1zyHhcI ) he’s too busy dealing with National Grid to discuss the power shutoff. He previously has said the mall’s monthly utility bill was $80,000, which includes electric heat.

The Long Island-based retail group bought the mall for $8.5 million about a year ago.

The mall is coping with the departures of four retailers, including Macy’s.
