Frandor Shopping Center is one of four shopping centers near Lansing, Michigan. It is located at the very eastern edge of the city bordering the neighboring city of East Lansing and freeway US-127. It is a 450,000 square feet (41,800 m2) strip center anchored by a Kroger supermarket, HomeGoods, Michaels, Jo-Ann Fabrics and Cost Plus World Market. 
Frandor was the first shopping center in Lansing and the second in Michigan, opening in 1954. The shopping center was originally owned by Francis J. Corr, and was named using a conjunction of his and his wife Dorothy's name.
In April 2010 clothing store AJWright moved into the space formerly occupied by the CompUSA electronics store. After parent company TJX Companies eliminated the AJWright brand, the store was converted to HomeGoods.
Frandor has a variety of options for incoming businesses, allowing start ups to come in and lease a small space with the potential to expand. The Frandor Merchant Association has a high participation level and meets regularly to discuss promoting the area.
In 1967 the Spartan Twin (later Spartan Triplex) opened in the Frandor Shopping Center. The theater played the Rocky Horror Picture Show on Saturday nights. The establishment was closed in February 1994 and later used as a Discovery Zone.
The Odeon was a small film house in Frandor that was opened by Frank Leahey. It is no longer open.
