Arnot Mall is a "super regional" mall,[3] serving mainly New York's Southern Tier and Finger Lakes Region.

History[edit]

Arnot Mall opened in 1967 as "The Mall" Shopping Center, at which time it had only 40 stores. It underwent an expansion in 1980 and now has an area of just over 1,000,000 sq ft (92,903 m2) and over 100 stores. Several anchors have changed names in the mall's history, the most recent being Burlington Coat Factory, which opened in 2006 in a former Bradlees.[4] Other former anchor stores include Hess's (which became Kaufmann's in 1995[5] and Macy's in 2006), and Iszard's (later McCurdy's, now The Bon-Ton).

For the 2011 school year, all Pennsylvania Real Estate and Trust owned malls, including Arnot Mall, gave away free school supplies with a purchase[6] of at least $75.[7] Racecar driver Jeff Gordon was spotted in the Arnot Mall arcade on Saturday, August 13 after a race on August 8 at Watkins Glen International.[8] Later that day, Robby Gordon gave out signatures outside of GNC.[9] Employees of the mall said they felt the 2011 Virginia earthquake that affected much of the northeastern United States.[10]
