Markland Mall serves Kokomo, Indiana — a metropolitan area of 100,000 people. As a regional retail hub, the center reaches beyond the metropolitan area. Markland Mall is the only regional mall within a 40-mile radius, solidifying its position as the dominant shopping destination in the area. The market includes the Grissom Air Reserve Base, with a population of 1,650. Chrysler growth continues with the retooling and modernization of the company’s ITP 1 and Kokomo Casting Plants. Chrysler is also opening the former Getrag Plant at the intersection of US 31 and Hwy 28 in Tipton County, where hiring has been strong with another round anticipated.
