Albany Mall is an enclosed shopping mall in Albany, Georgia. Opened in 1976, it features Belk, J. C. Penney, Dillard's, Old Navy, and Books-A-Million as its anchor stores. It is managed by Aronov Realty.

History[edit]

The mall opened in 1976, originally featuring Gayfers (now Dillard's), Belk, Rosenberg's, and Sears as its anchor stores. Aronov Realty received approval in 1987 for a new wing featuring a new anchor store, J. C. Penney. This store replaced a nearby location at Midtown Shopping Center.[2] The store opened in 1988.[3] Also that year, the Belk store was renovated.[4] Rosenberg's closed in 1990 and became Mansour's a year later.[5]

Old Navy joined the mall in 2000,[6] and Mansour's closed a year later.[7] In April 2004, Books-A-Million relocated into the former Mansour's space,[8] replacing a nearby store on Old Dawson Road.[9] J. C. Penney was renovated in 2011.[3]

Sears closed in 2017.
