Pompano Citi Centre is a primarily open-air shopping mall in Pompano Beach, Florida. The center consists of a big box retailer strip, in addition to a small lifestyle center section. The mall's anchors include J. C. Penney, Lowe's, Macy's, Sears, Ross and PetSmart considered by Sterling, the property owner, as junior anchors. [1]

Previously, the center was an enclosed mall called Pompano Square. Originally developed by Leonard L. Farber, Inc. in 1970, Pompano Fashion Square was renamed and renovated in 1985 to better compete with newer shopping centers.[1] By the early-2000s, however, Pompano Square was a dead mall. Interest in redevelopment surfaced in 2004, and Faison revitalized the center into its current state in 2006.

Sterling Organization purchased the mall in 2012. Since then the new owners have worked on rebranding, a new website, to bring lively events to the mall and also to fill the mall with more tenants and exciting tenants.

The old enclosed mall featured Jordan Marsh (which became Mervyn's and later Dillard's, but was demolished in 2005 for Lowe's) and Burdines, today operating as Macy's. Penney's and Sears were retained from the old mall.[2]

A carousel is located in front of J.C. Penney's as entertainment. It was added in 2012, after Sterling bought the mall.
