It is located at the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and NW Expressway, near Interstate 44. The mall's anchor stores consist of J. C. Penney, Macy's, and two separate Dillard's stores.

History[edit]

The center was originally built as an outdoor shopping center in 1960 with anchors John A. Brown and Montgomery Ward. After the opening of regional enclosed malls such as Quail Springs Mall and Crossroads Mall, the center was enclosed in 1982 and renovated in 1988 to include a second level and food court at a cost of $100 million. A multi-story parking structure was added and the mall further expanded in 1995, and the mall renovated once again in 2000.

John A. Brown was sold to Dillard's in 1984.[2] In 2001, Dillard's expanded its presence following the closure of the Montgomery Ward store by operating a second location out of the space that Montgomery Ward vacated.[3] Foley's, part of the mall's 1988 expansion, converted to Macy's in 2006.[4]
