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.


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.
