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. Gayfers, an original anchor of the mall, became Dillard's in 1998. 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.
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. The area ultimately became a Planet Fitness in 2013.
Belk announced its closure in December 2013.
On October 15, 2018, it was announced that Sears would be closing as part of a plan to close 142 stores nationwide.
