Eastdale Mall is a regional enclosed shopping mall located in Montgomery, Alabama. It opened in 1977.[1] As of 2010, it was 964,717 square feet (89,625.1 m2) in size.[2] The mall's anchor stores are At Home, Belk (two locations), Dillard's, and J.C. Penney.

J.C. Penney's store was added to the mall in 2005, relocating from a store at Montgomery Mall.[3] Both of the Belk locations were previously occupied by Parisian until 2007; the larger of the two was built as Pizitz, then operated as McRae's from 1987 to 1998. Dillard's was previously a Gayfers until 1998. In April 2016, Sears announced it would be closing stores throughout the summer. The Eastdale location was one of 10 to close that year. At Home opened in the former Sears in 2017.

The mall's movie theater closed in March 2013 and nothing has opened in that area since. Later that same year, a Chuck E. Cheese's opened across from Belk in the mall.[4]
