Georgia Square Mall, located in Athens, Georgia, United States, is a super-regional shopping mall in the northeastern part of the state. Its clientele includes students attending University of Georgia, a major university in the state.

History[edit]

Opened in 1981, this two-level mall was originally noted for its retro design features including the foil-copper look used on the mall entrance to Belk. This was also one of the largest more rural malls in the country in the era it was built. The mall also opened with other anchors Davison's, Sears and JCPenney. The anchors to the mall had originally been in Downtown Athens and relocated when it opened.

In 2007, the mall began a renovation to the exterior entrances in the rear as well as an updated look on the interior.[1] However, even with two overhauls, the mall is now much like it was when it opened. The only anchor change was in the name of Davison's; it was converted to Macy's in 1986, Rich's in 1998, Rich's-Macy's in 2003 and back to Macy's in 2005. As of February 2017, Macy's has closed.
