St. Clair Square is an enclosed shopping mall in Fairview Heights, Illinois. Opened in 1974, the mall features Macy's, Dillard's, J. C. Penney, and Sears as its anchor stores. It is managed by CBL & Associates Properties.

History[edit]

The May Department Stores Company built the mall[2] in 1974 with Famous-Barr, J. C. Penney, and Sears. Stix Baer & Fuller built a store on the mall site in 1979.[3] This store became Dillard's in 1984.

It was sold to The Hahn Company in 1989.[4] A food court was added in the early 1990s.[2] Hahn then sold it to CBL & Associates Properties in 1996.[2] At the time, it was the fifth-largest mall in the St. Louis, Missouri metropolitan area.[5] Famous-Barr became Macy's in 2006.[6] The same year, the Dillard's store was expanded by 80,000 square feet (7,400 m2).[7]
