Brookfield Square is a regional shopping mall located in Brookfield, Wisconsin, a suburb of Milwaukee. The mall is located at the intersection of Bluemound Road and Moorland Road, near Interstate 94. It is managed by CBL & Associates Properties. Its anchor stores are Boston Store, J. C. Penney, and Sears.

History[edit]

Brookfield Square was built in 1967 as a 3-anchor, 1-story shopping mall including 60 stores and services including the same 3 anchor tenants it has today, plus a Kohl's Food Store, a Woolworth's, T.A. Chapman's, and Walgreens. Kohl's left the mall in 1977 and was converted into a Houlihan's restaurant. Woolworth's and the mall's single screen cinema left the mall in 1994 and a food court was created in its place.

The mall went under a massive renovation in 2004, creating many new outparcel stores and restaurants. The mall's interior was given a new style, and new restaurants were built on the exterior walls of the mall.

In November 2013, an expansion was proposed which would comprise nine more storefronts.[1] Old Navy and Hallmark Cards both closed in early 2014.[2] Also in 2014, Shoe Carnival was added in the Sears wing.[3] The Sears anchor was closed abruptly in September 2014 due to structural concerns over its roof.[4]
