History[edit]

Opened in 1982 as a small upscale mall, Foothills Mall originally including Goldwater's and Levy's as its anchors,[1] as well as a small movie theater. Levy's later became Sanger-Harris and then Foley's,[2] while Goldwater's became Dillard's. Los Angeles-based The Broadway also anchored the mall at the south end. Both Dillard's and Foley's closed in 1994, as they were overlapped at nearby Tucson Mall.,[1] and The Broadway soon followed.

By the mid-1990s, Foothills Mall was finding little support for its upscale niche and was largely vacant. The mall was re-tenanted as an ancillary/outlet oriented mall, with Barnes & Noble and Saks Fifth Avenue's Off Fifth outlet opening in part of the old The Broadway.[3][4] Meanwhile, a Ross Dress for Less and Nike Factory Store moved into the former Dillard's, and the movie theater was expanded. A standalone Walmart Supercenter was also added in the mid-1990s, as well as new stores on the perimeter of the property.

Today, the mall boasts tenants including Old Navy Outlet, Nike Factory Store, Bath and Body Works, a 15-screen AMC Lowe's Theaters / IMAX Theater, Applebee's, Outback Steakhouse, and World Sports Grille.
