History[edit]

Melvin Simon & Associates opened Tippecanoe Mall in 1974. It was originally slated for a 1973 opening with Montgomery Ward and Detroit-based Federal's as its anchors,[2] although the other anchor instead became J. C. Penney. William H. Block Co. was added as a third anchor.

Montgomery Ward closed its store at the mall in April 1983. The same year, high winds damaged the Block store, so Block temporarily moved its merchandise to the former Montgomery Ward while its store was repaired.[3] By 1985, Kohl's had replaced the Montgomery Ward.[4] An expansion announced in 1994 added a new wing anchored by Sears and L. S. Ayres, the latter of which relocated from Market Square Mall.[5] Block's became Lazarus in 1987.

The first Hat World opened at Tippecanoe Mall in 1995.[6] Lazarus closed its store and two others in 2002.[7] In 2004, the Lazarus building was razed for Dick's Sporting Goods and hhgregg.[8] H&M opened in 2012, replacing a former MC Sports.[9]
