Governor's Square is a super-regional shopping mall located on Apalachee Parkway in Tallahassee, Florida. Its two-level design was a first for northern Florida when it opened in 1979, and it remains the newest of two enclosed malls in the Tallahassee area, the other being Tallahassee Mall. Its anchors are Sears, JCPenney, Dillard's, and Macy's. Chicago, Illinois-based General Growth Properties owns and manages Governor's Square.

Built into a hillside, the mall can be entered either on the first or second level, depending on where a particular entrance is located. The mall's original anchors, JCPenney, Sears and Maas Brothers, anchored the original structure. Maas Brothers was converted to Burdines in 1991. A 1993 expansion included an additional wing as well as Dillard's becoming the fourth anchor.[2] Over the course of 2004 and 2005, the Burdines store was converted to a Macy's.
