History[edit]

Lima Mall opened in 1965. Originally 166,000 square feet in size, the mall was one of the first smaller, regional centers built by Edward J. DeBartolo, Sr.. Lazarus was added as an anchor in 1971.[2] Another anchor, a local department store called The Leader, was sold to Elder-Beerman in the mid-1970s.[3] An F. W. Woolworth Company store closed at the mall in mid-1997.[4] The Lazarus store became Lazarus-Macy's in 2003, then dropped the Lazarus name in 2005.

In January 2013, Old Navy moved from its existing store to a space previously occupied by New York & Company, with The Shoe Department Encore replacing Old Navy's former store.[5]
