Vista Ridge Mall is a shopping mall in Lewisville, Texas, USA owned and managed by Rouse Properties, one of the largest mall owners in the United States. Constructed in 1989, it is located on the southwest corner of Round Grove Road and the portion of Interstate 35E known as Stemmons Freeway. It contains 160 stores, four of which are anchor tenants: Dillard's, JCPenney, Macy's (formerly Foley's), and Sears.

The mall had its grand opening on October 4, 1989, with Sears and Dillards as its initial anchor stores.[1] By March 1990, an additional 19 stores had opened including The Gap, Casual Corner, and The Limited and Vista Ridge Mall was 65 percent leased.[3] The mall added a third anchor store when J.C. Penney opened its Vista Ridge Mall store on August 1, 1990.[4] The fourth anchor store to open was a Foley's, a unit of May Department Stores, as part of an expansion push by the chain.[5]

In 1991, the mall underwent interior renovations to make the indoor areas more appealing.

When Vista Ridge Mall opened in 1989, it included a 12-screen Cinemark theater, whose marquee and ticket office were in the center court of the mall.[6] In 2006, Cinemark constructed an attached 15 screen movie theater to the mall (it contains entrances both inside and outside the mall) and relocated there upon completion. (As of 2009, the original theater remains unused.)
