Businesses say Concord Mall owners won’t pay for services | Business

ELKHART — One of several local business owners who say they weren’t paid for services at the Concord Mall claims he was told to “bark like a seal” when he sought payment.

Mike Reed with Homeworks Remodeling says the company was asked to board up a broken window at the mall in September. He has been trying to get a $564 invoice paid ever since.
