The mall has 1,558,860 square feet (144,823 m2) GLA and has 5 anchor stores and over 200 tenants in all.

Hanes Mall was North Carolina's largest enclosed shopping mall until 2004 when SouthPark Mall in Charlotte finished its expansion project.[citation needed]

History[edit]

The original mall, the north wing, was opened in 1975 with Belk, J.C. Penney and Sears. In 1990, a new wing was built, expanding the mall southward to include Ivey's (this store was signed as Ivey's but, due to an acquisition by the parent company, opened as Dillard's), Thalhimer's (converted to Hecht's in 1992, and to Macy's in 2006) and a new food court.[citation needed]

Because of this design, one must go through J.C. Penney to cross from one wing to the other. In addition, the mall is built into the side of the hill; patrons enter through the first floor on the east side of the mall, but must enter on the second floor on the west side. Hanes Mall is two stories throughout, with the exception of Belk and Macy's, which each have an additional floor.[citation needed]

The road that loops the mall's parking lot is known as Hanes Mall Circle and is the address for many outlying businesses. There are five roadway entrances into the mall parking lot, one off of Silas Creek Parkway, two off of Hanes Mall Boulevard, and two off of Stratford Road. Hanes Mall also had a four-screen General Cinema movie theater until October 10, 2000; it stood at the spot that is now home to the Texas Roadhouse restaurant. Golden Corral is in what used to be the parking lot next to the theater. Golden Corral has the theater's old address which is 180 Hanes Mall Circle. The theater closed after the lease ended. The theater was at Hanes Mall for 25 years and was one of the original buildings at the mall.[citation needed]

Hanes Mall has the Piedmont Triad's only locations of upscale stores, It features a number of national retailers.[citation needed] The Wake Forest University Deacon Shop also is located at the mall on the lower level of the north wing just outside Belk.

A large, working carousel is located on the lower level. The mall is currently owned and operated by CBL & Associates Properties, Inc.[citation needed]

An H&M store opened in November, 2011.[2] This is the second store in the Carolinas, the other being in Raleigh.[3]

On November 8, 2018, it was announced that Sears will be closing this location in early 2019 a part of a plan to close 40 stores.[4]
