Paddock Mall is an enclosed shopping mall in Ocala, Florida. Opened in 1973, it features Belk, J. C. Penney, Macy's, and Sears as its anchor stores.


The first plan for Paddock Mall was made in 1973 by local developers, who sold the land to Edward J. DeBartolo Corporation.[2] DeBartolo and Arlen Realty and Development Corporation opened Paddock Mall in 1980. Original anchors included Maas Brothers, Belk-Lindsey, and J. C. Penney.[3][4]

A 1991 expansion added Sears as a fourth anchor; the same year, the Maas Brothers store was sold to Burdines.[5] In 1997, a food court was added on the south end.[6] Burdines became Burdines-Macy's in 2003 and Macy's in 2005.

WP Glimcher, based out of Columbus, Ohio acquired the mall in 2015.[7]
