The Auburn Mall, managed by Simon Property Group, which owns 56.1% of it, is an enclosed shopping mall located on Route 12 in Auburn, Massachusetts, United States, near the intersection of the Massachusetts Turnpike (Interstate 90) and I-290/I-395.

The mall features Macy's, and Sears as anchors.[2] Reliant Medical Group will open its Auburn campus in the mall's third anchor space in the spring of 2018.[3][4]

History[edit]

The mall was originally built in 1971 and featured Denholm's and Sears as anchors.[5] Denholm's was converted to Forbes & Wallace, and later to The Outlet, a Providence, Rhode Island-based department store chain. The Outlet store closed in the 1980s and was replaced with Caldor.

The mall underwent a significant renovation in 1997 which added Filene's as a third anchor.[6] Caldor closed in 1999 and was converted to a Filene's home store.[7] In 2006, the two Filene's stores in the mall were both converted to Macy's.

In October 2015, the mall unveiled plans to add a 10-screen cinema and restaurant in the space occupied by Macy's Home Store.[8] By April 2016, those plans were approved.[9] However, in November 2016, the mall abandoned previous plans and proposed a new medical center for the Macy's Home Store space.[10] On June 16, 2017, the mall announced that Reliant Medical Group will open in the space formerly occupied by Macy's Home Store in 2019.[11]
