Arrowhead Towne Center is a regional enclosed shopping mall located in Glendale, Arizona (west suburban Phoenix). The mall is managed by Macerich. It is anchored by Macy's, Sears, Dillard's, JCPenney, Forever 21, Dick's Sporting Goods, and AMC Theatres and is home to 132 tenants. It is currently the only enclosed shopping mall in Phoenix's western suburbs (referred to as the "West Valley").
The mall opened in October 1993 on land formerly occupied by an orange grove, located at Bell Road and 75th Avenue, and was jointly developed and owned by Westcor and General Growth Properties (the former which owned a two-thirds share and managed the mall, and the latter which owned a one-third share).
In 2002, Westcor was acquired by Macerich, who continues to manage the mall today. In 2011, GGP sold its 1/3 ownership in the mall (along with its 1/3 ownership of Superstition Springs Center in Mesa), with Macerich assuming full ownership.
Since about 2007, Arrowhead Towne Center has been undergoing a transition to serve a more affluent and upscale shopper, in relation to its traditional middle-income customer base. The mall is already home to the West Valley's first Sephora location (opened in 2007), as well as Swarovski, Coach, and the West Valley's first Apple Store (which opened in the summer of 2008). In the past, West Valley shoppers have had to travel to Biltmore Fashion Park and Scottsdale Fashion Square, on the east side of the metropolitan area, to patronize retailers of this caliber. All of these tenants are new to Glendale.
