Rock Hill Galleria is an enclosed regional shopping mall for York, Chester, and Lancaster Counties. It is located in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Opened in 1991, the mall features six anchors (JCPenney, Sears, Belk, Walmart, Home South, and Revolutions) and around 70 specialty shops. The mall is currently managed by Cypress Equities.

History[edit]

The mall opened for business on May 16, 1991.[2] Zamias Services, Inc. developed the property.[3] Three of the anchor stores (Belk, J.C. Penney and Sears) moved from an existing mall called Rock Hill Mall, which closed in the early 1990s after losing those stores;[4] the other anchors at the Galleria included Phar-Mor and Walmart.[5] The former closed after only one year in business,[6] and was replaced with a Brendle's catalog showroom in October 1995,[7] but the store closed after only six months in business following the chain's filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.[8]

The Phar-Mor/Brendle's space remained vacant until 2004, when it was replaced by Steve & Barry's.[9] Goody's was added as an anchor in 1998, having been delayed from an initial opening date of November 1997.[10] These stores closed in 2008 and 2009, respectively, following the respective bankruptcy of each chain. In 2013, the Belk store was renovated, while the J. C. Penney store was doubled in size.[11]

In 2014, the former Goody's became Home South Furniture,[12] while Revolutions, a bowling alley and bar, opened in the former Phar-Mor/Steve & Barry's space.[13]
