Renovations[edit]

In 2003, the mall underwent a significant renovation including new paint, flooring, lighting, furniture and, few years later, a new exterior featuring a colorful tan color scheme replacing the white 1970s look.

Dillard's Women and Hurricane Rita[edit]

Dillard's once had two stores, Dillard's Men's & Kids, and Dillard's Women's & Home Store until September 24, 2005, when Hurricane Rita hit Beaumont, Texas. Extensive damage was caused to the Dillard's Women's & Home Store. In 2006, Dillard's Women's and Home Store joined with the Dillard's Men's and Kids, making it a sole location. The Women's store had been near the food court and has been demolished. The former Dillard's building is now the site of a relocated Bealls.
