History[edit]

The mall was built by Interstate Properties, with Grant City and Montgomery Ward serving as the original anchors. [2] Hecht's later took over the Grant's space. Leggett and Sears were added in the 1980s.

Leggett closed in 1997, and J. C. Penney took over the space the same year.[3] Also that year, the Hecht's relocated to a new store, with Target Corporation building a new store on the former Hecht's site.[4] After Montgomery Ward closed, Sears moved into the former Montgomery Ward building. The former Sears was then torn down in 2005 to make way for a Walmart.[5] Hecht's was re-branded Macy's. Target closed in February 2013.[6] In January 2015, it was announced the JCPenney store was closing as part of a plan to close 39 underperforming stores nationwide.[7]
