HAMILTON (Atlantic) — Unless an unpaid electricity bill gets settled, shoppers at Hamilton Mall in Atlantic County could find themselves in the dark, according to multiple reports.

The Press of Atlantic City was first to report that a notice had been posted at an entrance of the mall by Atlantic City Electric.

Despite the apparent warning from the utility, the mall has no new notices on its website, other than visits by the Easter Bunny will continue through April 3.

The mall was bought in 2019 by Long Island-based real estate investment firm Namdar Realty Group.
