Arizona Mills is an indoor outlet mall in Tempe, Arizona. It is co-owned by Simon Property Group and Taubman Centers and managed by Simon. It opened on November 20, 1997, with 6,000 parking spaces and approximately 200 retailers. It is currently anchored by outlet versions of Saks Fifth Avenue, Sears Appliance, Neiman Marcus, and Burlington Coat Factory. The mall is located on the Southeast corner of US 60 and I-10.

Despite the presence of 'Mills' in its name, it is not geographically close to or affiliated with Mill Avenue, a shopping and entertainment district near Hayden Butte to the north. The name comes from that of the property developer, formerly known as the Mills Corporation.

Like other Mills Centers, Arizona Mills has abstract graphics from the entrances and inside the whole mall. Likewise for this mall, numerous artworks are displayed throughout Arizona Mills from the people of Arizona.

In June 2008, the mall's website was changed from its former Mills Corporation format to its Simon Malls format along with 16 other sister Simon-Mills malls. It was the last Simon-Mills mall to make the switch. It is Simon's only mall and the third ever owned in Arizona. However, this will soon change on April 4, 2013 when Simon opens Phoenix Premium Outlets on the Gila River Indian Community near Chandler, Arizona. Simon had formerly owned Southgate Mall in Yuma, Arizona, and Metrocenter Mall (now owned by Westcor) in Phoenix.
