Northland Plaza opened in 1969, one of the first retail developments in Appleton. Original tenants included W. T. Grant and a Kroger supermarket. The center struggled with vacancy within its initial years; by 1971, Kroger, SupeRx Drugs, Hallmark, King's Food Host restaurant, and a dry cleaners had all closed, leaving only W. T. Grant, So-Fro Fabrics, and Kindy Optical. Despite these vacancies, Shopko opened a store at the center in March 1971. The 60,000-square-foot (5,600 m2) store was the second in the Fox Cities. Although W. T. Grant closed in 1976, several new stores opened within the plaza within the following year, including RadioShack. The W. T. Grant store became Lathrop Furniture in 1979.
In 1983, Kohl's replaced the Lathrop Furniture store. The same year, an enclosed mall was built, linking Kohl's to Shopko, and the property was renamed Northland Mall. Kohl's expanded into the mall concourse in 1995.
