Chicago Ridge Mall, formerly Westfield Chicago Ridge from 2004-2012, is a shopping mall in Chicago Ridge, Illinois. The mall includes three anchor stores (Carson Pirie Scott, Kohl's, and Sears), as well as a Bed Bath & Beyond, Michaels arts and crafts store, a movie theater and a food court. It was built in 1981 and expanded in 1986. In April 2012, Westfield sold the mall to Starwood Capital Group, with CBL & Associates Properties responsible for management.

History[edit]

Chicago Ridge Mall opened in 1981. Lenhdorff Group bought the mall in 1986 and sold it to JMB Realty a year later.[3]

In 1993, Montgomery Ward was added as an anchor in a spot previously occupied by Madigan's.[4] The Montgomery Ward space later became Bed Bath & Beyond and Steve & Barry's, the latter of which closed in 2008. In 2010, Westfield Group confirmed that Aldi would open in the space vacated by Steve & Barry's.[5]
