The Tri-State Mall is a shopping mall located on Delaware Route 92 (locally known as "Naamans Road") in Claymont, Delaware. At 535,000 square feet, it is Delaware's fourth biggest mall, boasting approximately 50 shops. It is located just off of Interstate 95 and is less than a mile from the Pennsylvania/Delaware border. Anchor stores include Kmart and Burlington Coat Factory. A good percentage of shoppers are from Pennsylvania, wishing to take advantage of Delaware's lack of sales tax.

Layout[edit]

The mall includes a single-level, enclosed building arranged in a cross pattern. Exterior stairs on the building's eastern end lead to an adjacent strip mall of stores on the lower level of the property's parking lot. Current anchor stores include Kmart and Burlington Coat Factory. Opened in 1970, the mall originally featured Grant City and Wilmington Dry Goods (later Value City) as its anchor stores.[2] Grant City became Kmart in 1976, while Wilmington Dry Goods became Value City. The latter closed and became Burlington Coat Factory in 2008.[3]

The strip section once included a Silo.
