The Lehigh Valley Mall is an enclosed super-regional shopping mall located in Whitehall Township, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania in the United States. It is the largest shopping mall in the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania.
Originally opened in 1976, the mall was purchased by Simon Property Group in 2003. In 1995, the mall went under its first major renovation. The spiral ramp was removed to make way for a glass elevator, fountains were removed, and renovations to the mall's interior and exterior appearance were made. A 110,000 square feet (10,000 m2) lifestyle center addition was added in October 2007, housing such stores as Apple, Coach, Sephora and Barnes & Noble.
There is an additional outdoor strip center called the Lehigh Valley Convenience Center on the east side of the lot housing Babies R Us and Hhgregg. It has 87,280 square feet. Restaurants are located inside the mall and along its beltway road.
