History[edit]

Northwoods Mall opened in 1973[1] and designed by architects Sidney H. Morris & Associates of Chicago.[2] Cost of construction was $25 million.[2] One of the mall's original anchors, Carson Pirie Scott, closed in 1984 and was sold to Famous-Barr.[3] It converted to Macy's in 2006.[4] Montgomery Ward closed its store in the mall in 1997,[5] and it became a Sears a year later.[6] A 2005 renovation added a food court.[7]
