Logan Valley Mall opened in November 1965 as an open-air shopping center with Sears,Weis Markets and a few small shops. In 1966, J.C. Penney (Penney's at the time) was constructed and the mall was enclosed for a grand opening on June 8, 1967. In 1979, another expansion was completed by Crown American with the construction of Hess's Department Store at the far end of the mall from Sears with a new two story mall addition between Penney's and Hess's. On December 16, 1994 a fire broke out and destroyed over half of the mall. A three phase plan was immediately laid out. The plans were as followed. The first phase, beginning in 1995 started with a new store, Kaufmann's which was added to the far end of the mall to replace Hess's. The already built, undamaged two story portion of the mall was renovated, and these Renovations included changeovers, such as the branding of Wall To Wall Sound & Video to The Wall and temporary relocation of restaurants such as Wong's Wok. Another phase one project was the construction of a new two story mall to replace the portion damaged by the fire. Phase Two consisted of opening a new three story parking garage and a new eight screen Carmike Cinema. Phase three completed in 1997 and included the openings of a new larger JCPenney location closer to Sears. Following this opening, a new food court opened in the renovated second floor of the former JCPenney store, which allowed for more stores in the old two story section. A Best Buy Mobile location was added in November 2012.
