Provo Towne Centre is an enclosed shopping mall in Provo, Utah. Opened in 1998, the mall is anchored by J. C. Penney, Sears, Dillard's, and a Cinemark movie theater. It is managed by General Growth Properties.

History[edit]

When the mall was being built, developers JP Realty filed a lawsuit against the city of Orem for offering incentives to keep ZCMI from relocating its store from University Mall.[2] Also, the Provo city council wanted JP Realty to call the mall "Utah Valley Towne Centre" instead.[3]

The mall ultimately opened in 1998, causing J. C. Penney to relocate from University Mall.[4][5] General Growth Properties acquired the mall in 2002 when it purchased JP Realty's portfolio.[6] In 2008 the MTV film American Mall was filmed at the mall.[7]

Anchors[edit]

Dillards, J. C. Penney, Sears, and Cinemark Theatres.
