Eastpoint Mall is a mall in Dundalk, Maryland. The mall currently has 139 stores, including its anchors Value City Furniture, Burlington Coat Factory, Gabe's, and JCPenney with one vacant anchor last occupied by Sears.

The food court at the mall has been the site of retirees from World War II to reminisce.[1]

History[edit]

In the current location of the mall was a shopping center that included a Hutzler's and Hochschild Kohn's department store. In the 1970s, this shopping center was enclosed, thereby making the location a mall.[2] JCPenney came to the mall in 1974.[3] In 1981, a Record Bar store opened at the mall.[4] The Hutzler's store closed in 1984[5] and became a food court in 1991,[6] while Sears was also added.[7] Value City and Value City Furniture later split the old Hochschild Kohn's building. Ames was also added as an anchor, later becoming Steve & Barry's. Steve & Barry's closed in 2008, becoming DSW and Shoppers World in 2010. DSW since closed in early 2016. The mall's fountain was based on Robert Woodward's El Alamein Fountain in Sydney. A half-dandelion version was at Towson Town Center.[8] On November 2, 2017, it was announced that Sears would be closing as part of a plan to close 63 stores nationwide. The store closed in January 2018.[9]
