Longview Mall is an enclosed shopping mall in Longview, Texas. Opened in 1978, it features J. C. Penney, Sears, Dillard's, Bealls, and L'Patricia as its anchor stores.

History[edit]

The original anchors of Longview Mall were Bealls, J. C. Penney, Dillard's, H. J. Wilson Co. (later Service Merchandise), and Selber Brothers. In 1987, Selber Brothers sold its locations at Longview and Broadway Square Mall to Dillard's, who converted both to separate men's clothing stores.[3]

In 2004, Bealls relocated to the former Service Merchandise building, while the original Bealls became a miniature golf course.[4]

Dillard's expanded its original store in 2006, resulting in the closure of the men's wear store in the former Selber Brothers. The expansion made the 143,000 square foot Dillard's the largest one-story location in the chain.[5] The former Selber Brothers space remained vacant until it became L'Patricia in 2012.[6]

Waldenbooks, an original tenant of the mall, closed in 2009.[7]
