The Centre at Glen Burnie is a regional partially enclosed shopping mall located in Glen Burnie, Maryland. Anchor Stores are: Toys-R-Us, Target, H.H Gregg, And Office Depot. The Centre currently has 20 stores and 4 anchors on 1 floor. It will be demolished later in 2017 to make way for a new movie theater, bowling alley, and health club. It is owned by Goodman Properties and managed by [[6711 GLEN BURNIE RETAIL LLC, a subsidiary of LNR Property LLC. ]].
The center opened in 1963 as the Glen Burnie Mall, the third shopping mall developed by Edward J. DeBartolo, Sr.. At the time of its opening it had Montgomery Ward as an anchor as well as an A&P grocery store, a G.C. Murphy variety store and a single-screen movie theater. The mall's second anchor, a Topps Discount City (a division of Interstate Department Stores) was dedicated in March 1969. This store was shuttered in late 1974. Toys "R" Us (another Interstate division) opened a store in the Topps space, as did Baltimore-based Epstein's department store. Today that space is occupied by Toys "R" Us, Office Depot, and hhgregg.
A fire damaged the north end of the mall on October 24, 1981. The center, except for Montgomery Ward, was closed while renovations could be completed. The shopping center re-opened in November 1982.
Montgomery Ward went out of business in 2000. In 2002, the mall was sold to Petrie Ventures, which announced plans to tear down the vacant Wards store and built a new Target discount store. The mall also underwent extensive renovations that added outward-facing retail bays. In 2005, the mall was renamed the Centre at Glen Burnie. In 2012, Jones Lang LaSalle was named leasing agent and manager of the center.
The property was transferred on March 14, 2016 from the legal entity BACM 2006-5 Ritchie Highway LLC to one known as 6711 Glen Burnie Retail LLC for a book amount of $15M.  Both LLC's are, in turn, ultimately owned by Starwood Property Trust LLC in Greenwich, CT. Starwood owns the property through its $1.05 billion acquisition of LNR Property LLC and its subsidiary LNR Partners LLC of Miami, FL in 2013.
In December 2016, 5 stores left the mall including one of the anchors Famous Footwear. On December 31, 2017 the mall will close to make way for a new movie theater, bowling alley, and health club.
