The Reisterstown Road Plaza, usually known since its inception simply as "The Plaza," is a shopping center and mall located near the Reisterstown Plaza Metro Subway Station. Originally built as an outdoor shopping center (with two parallel rows of stores between the original anchors Hecht's and Stewarts), it was later converted into an indoor mall, and then expanded with big box stores in an outdoor shopping area. The Reisterstown Road Plaza opened in 1962.
Previous anchors at the Reisterstown Road Plaza were the now defunct chains of Stewart's/Caldor, Zayre/Ames, Hechinger, and Hecht's. Some of the current anchors include Burlington Coat Factory, Home Depot, National Wholesale Liquidators, Modell's, and Giant Food. Other stores and restaurants include Shoe City, Economy Shoes, Foot Locker, Big Lots Stores, Popeyes, Applebee's, Panda Express, KFC, Long John Silvers, and Checkers
The Plaza also houses a satellite campus of Baltimore City Community College, CJIS, Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services, Maryland Board of Nursing and the office of vital records for the state of Maryland.
In 1991, the Plaza underwent a 125,000-square-foot (11,600 m2) expansion
