South County Center is a shopping mall located in Mehlville, Missouri. It opened in 1963 with Famous-Barr, which became Macy's in 2006, and later a JC Penney as anchors. Stix, Baer & Fuller, (which became Dillard's in 1984), was added in 1973 along with a new wing of stores. A Sears, a food court, and additional mall stores were added in 2001.
