History[edit]

Plaza del Norte opened its doors in 1992. In 2005 the mall was acquired by DDR Corp.

During the mid to late 2000s, the mall started to loose many of its tenants. The Cinevista Theatre and Pueblo Supermarkets were closed after their respective parent companies went bankrupt. Party City and Pitusa, which, along with Pueblo, occupied the strip mall area, also left . This led to that part of the mall becoming nearly fully vacant, as the smaller stores and Casa Febus relocated to the enclosed mall. The opening and later expansion of the Puerto Rico Premium Outlets in Barceloneta, led to many stores to open in this outlet mall than in Plaza del Norte. In the JCPenney wing, several formerly small stores were combined into a Circuit City in 2008, but the chain's bankruptcy led to the store being closed a year later. The space was temporarily used by Casa Febus, until it moved to a new building outside the mall.

In 2011, DDR Corp. announced a significant interior and exterior renovation of the mall, including a 10,000-square-foot expansion and renovation of the existing J.C. Penney Co. store, which now occupies part of the JCPenney wing, including the former Circuit City. The project included the addition of a Rooms To Go, the combination of three small retail-space units to accommodate a PetSmart, several other new stores and outparcels, a new Caribbean Cinemas movie theater and new carts and kiosks through the entire mall. The project was completed in mid-2013.[2][3]
