Northwoods Mall is a 130-store regional 833,833-square-foot (77,465.6 m2) indoor shopping mall located in North Charleston, South Carolina. It is the second largest indoor shopping mall in the Tri-County area next to Citadel Mall. Built in 1972, the mall is located at the intersection of Rivers Avenue (U.S. Highway 52), Ashley Phosphate Road and Interstate 26. Northwoods Mall was the first regional indoor shopping mall constructed in the South Carolina lowcountry and featured Belk, Sears, and the locally owned Kerrison's department stores as its original anchor tenants. A food court offers options such as Charley's Steakery, China Max Asian Cuisine, Dairy Queen, Orange Julius and more.[1]

The mall also once housed a Woolworth's but it was remodeled into the food court in 1997. In 1989 the mall closed its small theater in favor of a multi-screen complex located just outside the Dillard's side. The mall underwent a significant expansion and renovation in 1985 and Thalhimer's was added as an anchor tenant, with Kerrison's demolished and replaced by JCPenney in 1992. Also lost in the remodel was a Morrison's Cafeteria located next to Kerrison's.[citation needed]

Thalhimer's was later sold to Dillard's in 1992 and expanded in 2004. The mall was purchased in 1984 by Jacobs, Visconsi & Jacobs (later known as the Richard E. Jacobs group), owners and developers of Charleston's Citadel Mall, and later sold to current owners CBL & Associates Properties who again remodeled the mall in 2004. CBL & Associates Properties owned Citadel Mall until defaulting on mortgage payments and losing it to the lien-holder in a foreclosure sale in 2014.

Sears closed in July 2017.

The mall concourses and four of the department stores are one level in design, with JCPenney as the only two-level store.
