Cross Creek Mall is a regional shopping mall located in Fayetteville, North Carolina, on the 401 Bypass between Morganton Road and the All-American Freeway. The mall contains over 100 stores and covers over 1,000,000 sq ft (93,000 m2). of retail space. Its anchors include Belk, Macy's, J. C. Penney, and Sears.

History[edit]

The mall's land was bought in 1970 by Henry Faison, a Charlotte-based developer. The All American Freeway was planned at the time, but the area was predominantly farmland. The freeway began construction in May 1974, nine months before the mall opened on February 26, 1975. The mall opened with five anchors, three of which were lured from downtown Fayetteville: Sears, Belk Hensdale, and JC Penney; Miller and Rhodes and Thalhimer's, were new to the area. Miller and Rhoads closed in 1985. Thalhimer's became Hecht's in 1992, which in turn became Macy's in 2006.[dead link][2]

Anchors[edit]

All four anchors have two floors.
