Melbourne Square is an enclosed shopping mall in Melbourne, Florida. Opened in 1982, it is anchored by two Dillard's stores, J. C. Penney, Macy's, and Dick's Sporting Goods.

History[edit]

The first store to open at Melbourne Square in 1982 was Ivey's, with J. C. Penney and Jordan Marsh as the other two anchors at the time.[2] Expansions in 1986 added a new wing to the mall,[3] featuring Belk-Lindsey and Burdines.

Jordan Marsh closed in 1992 and became the first Florida location for Mervyns the same year.[4] The Mervyns store closed and became a second Dillard's in 1997.[5]

Belk moved to The Avenue in Viera in 2004.[6] The former Belk building was torn down in 2006 for Dick's Sporting Goods and Circuit City,[7] the latter of which went out of business in 2009.
