The Rogue Valley Mall is a regional shopping mall located in Medford, Oregon, and is the largest indoor shopping complex between Eugene, Oregon, and Sacramento, California. It is named "Rogue Valley" because it lies in the Rogue Valley in southwestern Oregon.
The Rogue Valley Mall was built in 1986 with original anchors being Mervyn's (north anchor), Montgomery Wards (east anchor)(Montgomery Wards was not actually an original store, it was added later. Initially that pad did not exist and this was simply a hall to an exit to the parking lot, with a movie multiplex on the north side of the hall.), JCPenney (south anchor), and Meier & Frank (west anchor). The largest anchor store was Meier and Frank. In 2001, the first anchor closed. Montgomery Ward filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The Wards location was later filled with a Meier and Frank Home Store on the lower level and a Copeland Sports on the upper level. On August 30, 2005, Meier and Frank was bought by Federated Department Stores, which soon changed the name of the Meier and Frank store to Macy's and the Home Store to Macy's Home. In August 2006, Copeland Sports filed for bankruptcy and was bought by Sports Authority, who changed the name soon after. The next anchor to close was Mervyn's in 2007, due to a pull-out of Oregon by the whole company. The vacant space was soon bought by Kohl's. JCPenney is the only original anchor. Linens-N-Things also operated a large store between Mervyn's and Macy's Home Store on the lower level; initially, this used to be Cinemark Movies 5 until it was moved out in 2001. Linens-N-Things was closed when the company went bankrupt in 2008 and was later occupied by Bed Bath & Beyond.
In 2016, Sports Authority shut down its store.
Today, the mall sits next to a Target and Interstate 5. It has more than 100 stores, including Chico's, Aeropostale, American Eagle, and Bath and Body Works. The current anchor stores are Kohl's, JCPenney, Macy's, Macy's Home (on the lower level), Vacant (on the upper level), and Bed Bath & Beyond (lower level). The food court features 13 eateries ranging from burgers to tacos to Japanese to Starbucks.
