At nearly 1.3 million square feet, Oak Hollow is the second largest mall in Guilford County and the third largest mall in the Piedmont Triad after Winston-Salem's Hanes Mall. When Oak Hollow Mall opened, it effectively led to the demise of Westchester Mall, which had opened in 1970 on High Point's west side off Westchester Drive just south of Phillips Avenue. After its closure, Westchester Mall was converted into a church and office complex.
Oak Hollow Mall saw a decline in the 2000s as many of its interior stores began shuttering, as did its anchors. The mall lost much of its traffic to retail centers in Greensboro and Winston-Salem in addition to facing challenges from the economic downturn. The Dillard's anchor closed one of its two levels and turned the remaining open area into an outlet for the chain. Another anchor, J.C. Penney, closed on June 1, 2011, as it was unable to meet the company's new profitability threshold. Steve & Barry's, which was originally Goody's Family Clothing, went out of business and was replaced by a Sears call center.
On February 24, 2011, CBL & Associates announced the sale of Oak Hollow Mall to High Point University for $9 million, although CBL continues to manage the mall. The university stated that the mall was to remain open as a retail complex for the time being.
On December 27, 2011, Sears Holdings Corporation announced that Sears in Oak Hollow Mall would close sometime in 2012. Liquidation sales began in February 2012, with the final closure occurring in the last weekend of April.
Belk left Oak Hollow in 2014 for a newer store at the Palladium shopping complex, located 5 miles (8 km) away.
