Mid Rivers Mall is a shopping center in St. Peters, Missouri, just off Interstate 70. The mall opened in 1987[1] and has since grown to be St. Charles County's largest shopping center.[2] Mid Rivers Mall includes over 140 shops and four anchor stores (Macy's, JCPenney, Sears, and Dillard's); junior anchors include V∙Stock, Dick's Sporting Goods and a 14-screen Wehrenberg Ciné.[1] The mall is owned by CBL & Associates Properties, which acquired the property in 2007 from the Westfield Group.[3]

Famous-Barr opened their store in 1981 on the site of the future Mid Rivers Mall. Mid Rivers Mall was finished in 1987 with 2 anchor stores, Dillard's and Famous-Barr, as well as a food court; a 6-screen cinema opened in 1988.[11] The 1990 expansion of Mid Rivers Mall included a new anchor store, Sears. Another expansion of Mid Rivers Mall in 1996 added the final anchor, J.C. Penney,[5] which moved from nearby Mark Twain Mall in St. Charles.[12] In 1999, Wehrenberg who owned the current 6-screen theater demolished it, and built a new 14-screen megaplex.[9] Due to the acquisition of The May Department Stores Company by Federated Department Stores, Famous-Barr was rebranded Macy's in 2006.[6] In 2011, Borders filed chapter 11 bankruptcy, and vacated Mid Rivers Mall as part of reorganization. V∙Stock, an entertainment media vendor, replaced the former Borders store.[13]
