History[edit]

Anderson Mall opened in March 1972 with 43 stores. The mall was anchored by department stores: JCPenney, Meyers Arnold,[1] and G.C. Murphy. In 1984 both Belk (then known as Gallant Belk) and Sears closed their Downtown Anderson stores and moved to the newly expanded and renovated mall which was the largest one level mall in South Carolina at the time. Meyers Arnold was later purchased by Uptons, and after that chain closed, that spot became a Belk Men's & Home store.

In 2007, the Belk Men's & Home store closed, with the Men's store moving into the existing Women's & Kids store. The Home Store relocated to an adjacent mall space next to the main Belk. These moves were to make way for a new store, Dillard's, which opened in late 2008. The entire mall and numerous other stores were also remodeled around that time.

The mall is owned and operated by Simon Property Group.
