Santa Rosa Mall is a shopping mall located in Mary Esther, Florida. It is anchored by Dillard's, JCPenney, and Sears. It also has a 10-screen United Artists cinema outside the mall. Stirling Properties manages and owns the mall.


Jim Wilson & Associates built the mall in 1976. A wing anchored by McRae's was added in 1984; the store became Belk in 2006.[3] Gayfers, an original anchor of the mall, became Dillard's in 1998.[4] A carousel was installed in 1996.

It was sold in 1987 to California Public Employees Retirement System, sold back to Jim Wilson in 1997, and re-sold in 2003.[5]

The mall underwent structural damage after Hurricane Opal in late 1995.[6]

In 2007, the mall underwent renovations which included new flooring and the opening of new restaurants. Space was also made for a Ross Dress for Less store, although it never opened.[7] The area ultimately became a Planet Fitness in 2013.[8]

Belk announced its closure in December 2013.[9]

On October 15, 2018, it was announced that Sears would be closing as part of a plan to close 142 stores nationwide.[10]
