Maplewood Mall is a super-regional shopping mall located in Maplewood, Minnesota, United States. It is located two blocks off Interstate 694 on the Saint Paul side of the Twin Cities. Maplewood Mall opened in 1974. It was later renovated and expanded in 1996 and is thought to be in the top six malls in the metropolitan area in terms of visitors.[1] It is managed by WP Glimcher out of Columbus, Ohio.[2]

The mall was renovated in 2011 with updated entrances, new carpeting and tile, energy-efficient lighting, and updated restrooms.[3] A Metro Transit hub opened near the mall in 2004 and features 425 park and ride stalls.[4] The mall is open two hours earlier than the stores open to allow people to get exercise by walking in a temperature controlled environment.[5]
