The Louisiana Boardwalk is a shopping center combining retail shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. It is located in Bossier City, Louisiana, across from two casinos and it is the largest outlet mall in Louisiana.[1]

Tenants at the 500,000 square foot (51,000 m²) complex, which opened in May 2005, include Regal Cinemas, Cumulus Broadcasting Studios, Bass Pro Shops, Banana Republic, Hooters, Buffalo Wild Wings, Old Farmer's Almanac, and Build-A-Bear Workshop. In addition, there are outlet stores owned by Nike and Haggar. There are more than seventy outlet stores, retail stores, restaurants and IMAX.[2]

On March 30, 2008, Louisiana Boardwalk put a controversial curfew in effect. No one under 16 is allowed after 8 p.m. unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.

On Wednesday, October 27, 2010, news outlets began reporting that O&S Holdings, the company that owns and manages the Louisiana Boardwalk, had defaulted on their loan payments and were late in paying by more than sixty days. Shopping Center Business magazine listed the Louisiana Boardwalk as the 10th most delinquent shopping center in the country based on the balance of their loan, $124 million.[3]

In 2011, the Louisiana Boardwalk faced foreclosure from its bank after six years of operation. Mayor Lo Walker worked successfully to keep the firm open under new management.[4]

Louisiana Boardwalk provides a sales tax refund on purchases up to $500 in cash and over $500 by check.[1]
