Today the Grand Forks Herald published ‘Under new ownership, Grand Cities Mall has fresh coat of paint; more changes to come’.

The Herald article appears to be a public relations response to stories published by Write Action on October 12, and October 16, regarding the ongoing bullying and threats of violence by Hope Church staff members against an 81 year-old shop-keeper at the Grand Cities Mall.

David Gerszewski, owner, Precious Metals Gold and Silver Exchange, was constructively evicted in August after his rent was abruptly increased from $500 to $2,000 a month.

Gerszewski’s store has been in the mall for 18 years and he presently employees one person to help out around the store.

The Herald article provides a glowing review of the mall’s future plans for a family focused environment and children-oriented activities that include a playground in the middle of the mall.

The aggressive and illegal acts (threats) involved the mall manager, Louis Christoffer, a former police officer with the Grand Forks Police Department.

Gerszewski said Christoffer mentioned the fact he was a former police officer every time they talked.

Write Into Action is investigating credible information that reveals the true and hidden reason behind the sanctioned and unlawful course of action taken against David Gerszewski, owner,  Precious Metals Gold and Silver Exchange.

    That one person he employs – a registered sex offender who molests children. This owner has this employee hand out candy during the mall’s trick or treating event. Do a full report next time. This business owner is no angel.
