Collin Creek Mall is a two level, enclosed regional mall in Plano, Texas. It is located near the intersection of US 75 (Central Expressway) and President George Bush Turnpike.

Anchor tenants[edit]

JCPenney

The JCPenney Co. department store is an original anchor tenant of the mall.

Macy's (closed)

This anchor location opened as a Sanger Harris department store. Sanger-Harris was merged with Foley's and renamed in 1987[1] then the combined company was sold to May Department Stores in 1988.[2] The store was renamed Macy's in September 2006 as a result of Federated Department Stores' purchase of the May Company in 2005. The store's final business day was on March 26, 2017.

Amazing Jake's

The fourth anchor opened as a Lord & Taylor department store. Lord & Taylor closed in 1990, and was replaced by a Mervyn's department store. Mervyn's exited the Texas market in early 2006 and the store was temporarily vacant. In July 2008, the former Mervyn's was converted into a two-story Amazing Jake's indoor playland and buffet restaurant.

Sears

The Sears Roebuck & Co. department store is an original anchor tenant of the mall.

Dillard's (closed)

The Dillard's department store was an original anchor tenant of Collin Creek, but closed in early 2014. [3]

History[edit]

In its early years Collin Creek featured a River Walk: a series of fountains connected by an indoor creek. Today the creek and most of the fountains have been removed. It also contained a "village" of small shops lining corridors narrower than the rest of the mall. Those shops were removed and the space converted into a food court as part of a remodeling project in 1992.[4] In 2008, Collin Creek Mall had a small remodel including new paint and new tile,[5] much like what Richardson Square Mall had in 1998.

Economic factors[edit]

Since the mall's opening, the area near Collin Creek has witnessed explosive growth, and the addition of the President George Bush Turnpike. The mall has suffered from fierce competition from newer nearby malls. The August 2000 opening of new regional mall Stonebriar Centre in nearby Frisco affected the sales of Lewisville's Vista Ridge Mall and Plano's Collin Creek Mall as both malls experienced what Larry Howard, vice president for development of General Growth Properties Inc., called "some cannibalization".[6] At the present time, Collin Creek Mall is one of many assets that will be sold by General Growth Properties; much like General Growth Properties did to its Las Vegas malls.[7]
