Westfield Southgate, formerly Southgate Plaza and South Gate Shopping Plaza, is a shopping mall in Sarasota, Florida. Opened in 1956, it is anchored by Dillard's, Macy's, and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Southgate Plaza opened in 1956 as a strip mall. It was enclosed in 1988. The original strip included two supermarkets: Publix and Winn Dixie's Kwik Chek, along with a W. T. Grant and Woolworth.
W. T. Grant closed its store in 1976, which was then sold to Burdines. A J. W. Robinson's department store was later added in 1978, becoming Maison Blanche in 1987 and Dillard's in 1992.
In 1994, Publix moved to a larger store across the street. The Publix building became Saks Fifth Avenue in 1996.
Following the opening of Saks, the mall was renovated to include more upscale stores such as Williams-Sonoma, Ann Taylor, and Banana Republic.
Westfield Group bought the mall in 2002, renaming it Westfield Southgate. Burdines became Macy's in 2003.
In 2012, Saks confirmed that it would move to a new mall being built by Taubman Centers.
