July 15, 2010; Source: Kansas City Star | In North Carolina, some malls are filling empty retail spaces with nonprofits. In some cases the spaces have been donated and in some cases the nonprofit pays a nominal fee for premium space. In one case at least, the mall and nonprofit have struck a deal that requires the nonprofit to move within 72 hours if the space is rented but the group says it is well worth it.—Ruth McCambridge
