Coral Square is an enclosed shopping mall in Coral Springs, Florida. The mall features Macy’s, Kohl's, J. C. Penney, Sears, and about 120 specialty stores and eateries. It was built by the Edward J. DeBartolo Corporation in 1984, and is currently owned by Simon Property Group.

The mall's original anchors included Burdines (which became Macy's Ladies Apparel in 2004) J. C. Penney, and a Lord & Taylor (which became Mervyns and later Dillard's and then Kohl's). Jordan Marsh was added in 1985 (this became Burdines Men's, Children & Home Store in 1991 and later Macy's in 2004), followed by Sears in 1988, which took the place of a proposed Macy's which had been planned, but was scrapped in favor of a location at the nearby Fashion Mall.

In 1995, the mall underwent a major renovation, and again in late 2008.

On November 26, 2016 a shop owner shot and wounded an employee, then turned the gun on himself and killed himself.[3] Coral Springs Fire Department took the wounded to a nearby hospital, where they were expected to be ok. The mall was closed for the morning then reopened later in the afternoon with heavily armed Coral Springs Police Officers.
