The mall is made up of 3 concourses, which connect at a central atrium. The former theater building was demolished in May 2010 and was replaced with a Romano's Macaroni Grill. Shoe Carnival is currently under construction

History[edit]

The mall was opened in the 1970s, when two of its current three concourses were opened. During that time, its main tenants were Woolworth's, Walgreens and Sears. During the late 1980s and early 1990s, the mall went under extensive renovations, including the construction of its third and largest concourse, anchored by JCPenney. One of the mall's lesser entrances was later expanded to connect to Walmart which opened in the mid 1990s. A Gonzalez Padín department store once co-anchored the Sears concourse, but it closed in the mid 1990s when the parent company went bankrupt. Its former space is occupied today by Sears Brand Central.

Today[edit]

Mayagüez Mall today is still the most important shopping hub in western Puerto Rico. The mall, however, has undergone little or no renovations since the 1990s. The lack of renovations has made the mall look dated to the late 1980s when the last major renovations took place.
