The Mall at Rockingham Park is located in Salem, New Hampshire. It is the largest shopping mall in New Hampshire, with 1,020,000 square feet (95,000 m2) of floor space. The mall is adjacent to the Rockingham Park race track in Salem, and was the state's third shopping mall to be built. The mall now hosts 140 stores, with anchors that include Lord & Taylor, Macy's, JCPenney, and Sears.
Like the Pheasant Lane Mall in Nashua, the Mall at Rockingham Park is located close to the Massachusetts border. New Hampshire has no sales tax on most goods. The success of the Mall at Rockingham Park, which opened in August 1991, caused the Methuen Mall across the line in Methuen, Massachusetts, to close in 1997; it was replaced with The Loop, a "big box"-style center. The Mall at Rockingham Park also caused the adjacent (and older) Rockingham Mall to convert into a "big box" center, as Salem could no longer support two shopping malls.
In 2006, the mall's original Macy's store (formerly Jordan Marsh) was closed, with Macy's moving into the location formerly occupied by Filene's. On March 16, 2012, Lord & Taylor celebrated the grand opening of their first New Hampshire store in the former Macy's/Jordan Marsh, giving the mall a fourth anchor store for the first time since 2006.
The mall is managed but not owned by Simon Property Group.
