Westfield Vancouver, formerly known as Vancouver Mall, is a shopping mall owned by Westfield Group, and is located in Vancouver, Washington. It is anchored by JCPenney, Macy's, Nordstrom and Sears.

History[edit]

The mall was opened in September 1977 by May Centers with Meier & Frank, Nordstrom and Sears as anchors. During phase two of mall expansion, a JCPenney was added; a Lipman's was also proposed but never built.[citation needed] Eventually, Mervyns would open where the Lipmans had been planned.

In 1993, the mall added a new food court and underwent a renovation of its interior.[1] The mall was acquired in 1994 by Westfield America, Inc.

In 1998 the mall was renamed "Westfield Shoppingtown Vancouver". Following the acquisition of The May Department Stores Company, the Meier & Frank store was renamed Macy's in September 2006.

The 82,225 ft² Mervyn's closed in January 2007. On June 1, 2012, it was converted to the Cinetopia "Vancouver Mall 23" video movie theater.[2][3]

In February 2014, it was announced that Nordstrom would be closing its store at the mall.[4]

Westfield Shoppingtown Vancouver is located across the river from Portland, Oregon in Washington's booming Clark County. The center continues to experience remarkable and positive sales growth resulting from the significant growth in the county (at nearly 5% each year), and the addition of these popular new stores: Eddie Bauer, Victoria's Secret, Bath & Body Works, Old Navy, Children's Place and The Disney Store. In 1993, an interior renovation was completed along with the addition of a new Food Court, which conveys the spacious feeling of a Pacific Northwestern lodge with grand windows overlooking Mount Hood. Westfield Shoppingtown Vancouver is one of the most inviting retail environments in the Pacific Northwest, and is well positioned to achieve continued strong sales growth.
