In 2019, Cary Towne Center has seen JCPenney close its doors and Dillard's announce plans to close permanently. In 2018, IKEA nixed plans to open a store in the mall, and Top Golf decided against bringing a location to the area.

The mall was also recently sold to investment groups based in New York and Dallas.

Thursday night, Cary Town Council's rezoning discussion will begin around 6:30.
