History[edit]

Fashion Show Mall

The Fashion Show Mall opened on February 14, 1981,[2] anchored by Diamond's, Bullock's, Goldwaters, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue. Diamond's was converted to a Dillard's store in 1986, Goldwaters became a May Company in 1989 and then a Robinsons-May in 1993, while Bullock's was converted to Macy's in 1996.[3]

In 2003, a major expansion of the mall was completed. 200,000 square feet of retail space was built, extending out of the backside of the mall between Robinsons-May and Macy's. Dillard's and Saks Fifth Avenue moved to new, larger locations in this new wing, alongside a Bloomingdale's Home store and Nordstrom. Neiman Marcus, Macy's, and Robinsons-May expanded their stores; and the former Saks Fifth Avenue was razed and replaced by several restaurants, a food court, and a strip-facing plaza called "The Cloud".[4]

The former Dillard's store, previously meant to house Lord & Taylor, sat empty until Forever 21 moved into the building in 2010.[5]

The mall's parent company Rouse was purchased by General Growth Properties in 2004.[6]

On September 9, 2006, following Federated's purchase of May Department Stores, Robinsons-May was converted to a second Macy's store. The store was shuttered in 2008 and remained empty until 2013, when it was converted into a wing of shops and a separate Macy's Men store.[7]

In January 2013, Macy's announced it would close the Bloomingdale's Home store.[8] That building remained empty until 2015, when Dick's Sporting Goods announced it would take over the building.[9]
