Enfield Square Mall, formerly Westfield Shoppingtown Enfield Square, is an enclosed shopping mall that is located in Enfield, Connecticut. The mall is owned by J.P. Morgan Chase.[1] At 788,000 square feet (73,200 m2), Enfield Square is the 10th largest mall in the State of Connecticut, containing 54 shops, all on one level.[2] There is currently only a single anchor store: Target.

The mall opened in 1971, with three anchor stores, G. Fox, JCPenney and Steiger's.[3] In 1993, G. Fox was converted to a Filene's store as a result of a merger. Steiger's ceased operations at the east side of the mall in 1994 when the chain went out of business. On April 26, 1997, Sears opened in the space formerly occupied by Steiger's.[4] In August 2000, JCPenney closed as a result of a nationwide closing of unprofitable stores.[5] The space remained vacant until Filene's expanded operations by moving its men's and home departments there in February 2001.[6] Target built a new anchor on the north side of the mall in October 2001.[7] In 2006, both of the Filene's stores were rebranded as Macy's after yet another merger.

In January 2016, Macy's announced they were closing both of the locations at the mall as a result of a nationwide closing of unprofitable stores.

In February 2016, J.P. Morgan Chase foreclosed on the mall after Madison Marquette (the owner of Centro Enfield, LLC) defaulted on a $240 million loan taken out in 2006.

On August 7, 2016, the Ruby Tuesday location at the mall closed.

On December 28, 2016, Sears announced that it would close its Enfield Square location.[8]

On April 25, 2017, Express announced that its Enfield Square store would be closing on May 6, 2017.
