Gulf View Square is an enclosed mall in Port Richey, Florida. Opened in 1980, it is anchored by Best Buy, Dillard's, Sears, World Of Decor, and TJ Maxx. It is owned by WP Glimcher.


Edward J. DeBartolo Corporation first proposed Gulf View Square in 1974. At the time, its anchor stores were slated to be Sears, Maas Brothers, Belk-Lindsey, and Robinson's of Florida.[2] The mall opened in March 1980 with Belk-Lindsey and Montgomery Ward as its anchor stores.[3] Maas Brothers opened in August 1981,[4] with Sears following in July 1982.[5]

J. C. Penney opened on the fifth anchor slot, which was originally planned for Burdines, in 1990.[6] Burdines ultimately entered the mall by taking the Maas Brothers store a year later.

Dillard's bought the Belk-Lindsey store in 1992.[7] A food court was added in 1998.[8] In 2001, Dillard's relocated from the former Belk to the former Montgomery Ward.[9] As a result, the former Dillard's store was demolished in 2002 for Linens 'n Things and Best Buy.[10] Linens 'n Things closed in 2008 and TJ Maxx opened in 2010.[11][12] Burdines became Burdines-Macy's in 2003 and Macy's in 2005. Old Navy, which opened in 2000, closed in 2009.[13]

A new management team began managing the mall in 2011, and announced plans to bring new stores.[12] JCPenney ended its 24-year run as anchor on August 2, 2014.[14] On January 8, 2015, Macy's announced they plan to close their location in the mall sometime by May 2015.[15]

WP Glimcher sold the Gulf View Square Mall to an unnamed investor in February 2017.[16]
