Knoxville Center, formerly East Towne Mall; located in Knoxville, Tennessee, is a super-regional shopping mall serving the Knoxville metropolitan area. The mall opened in 1984,[1] and is located at Exit 8 on Interstate 640. The mall's primary target is the fastest growing area in the market.[2]


Former anchors[edit]


Knoxville Center opened with a food court in the center of the mall located on the upper level of the Center Court. The food court is located directly next to the 10-screen Regal Stadium Cinema location.[3]

Renovation and name Change[edit]

East Towne Mall received a major renovation by its owner Simon Property Group in 1997. The outside was left unchanged aside from a new entrance. The inside was renovated with new tile, paint, trim, and other features. The mall adopted a Tennessee mountain theme. Once renovation was completed, the name Knoxville Center was adopted.
