History[edit]

[1] The mall opened on October 21, 1992 with space for six anchor stores and only four of them were occupied with Burdines, JCPenney, Mervyns, and Sears. The mall once had the same anchor lineup as Broward Mall in Plantation and Town Center Mall in Boca Raton, but Town Center lacks a JCPenney and instead has a host of four luxury department stores. Pembroke Lakes Mall is one of a very few malls in the Miami area that has opened without a Jordan Marsh store due to the fact that their Florida stores were disbanded a year before the mall was built. Prior to Pembroke Lakes Mall, Waldrep Dairy Farm owned the land and operated a dairy farm there as JCPenney and Burdines had moved in from the Hollywood Fashion Center six miles east while Sears moved from the Hollywood Mall. In 1995, the fifth anchor pad was filled by Dillard's while stores also opened at Brandon Town Center and Seminole Towne Center at this time. The mall gained a second Dillard's in 1997 as Mervyns sold its south Florida stores to the Little Rock retailer. Burdines merged with Macy's in 2003 and then simply Macy's in 2005. Macy's would also fill the sixth anchor pad as a second location. Like all Macy's in Florida that used to be Burdines, the palm tree columns reminiscent the Burdines style of all architecture that remains today. In 2016, GGP announced that the mall's Sears would shrink to make room for an AMC movie theater, which opened in 2017.
