Creekside Mortgage, Inc. wishes to express our condolences to those who have been affected by the shooting that occurred yesterday afternoon at Clackamas Town Center Mall.

The shooting has affected many people, both those who were at the mall when it occured and those who live in the greater Portland area. Clackamas Town Center Mall is still closed today and in Vancouver, the mall seems to have less traffic than what it had prior to the incident yesterday.

People in the area have been frightened, and it’s not difficult to understand why.

Because malls make a large portion of their yearly income from the holiday season, an unexpected result of this shooting may be that malls in the area do not meet their seasonal sales goals, which could have a ripple effect for the local economy.
