"The mall opened in March of 1981 and we've been building and going strong since then. And we just wanted to let the community know that we were still here, we're staying open, things are going well, and that we were excited about all the changes that will be coming. And we wanted to share our celebration with the community," said Killeen Mall Senior Marketing Manager Mardi Peaster, who has been with the mall for over 18 years.
