The Solomon Pond Mall, operated by Simon Property Group, who owns 56.4% of it, is a two-level enclosed shopping mall located off Interstate 290, near its terminus at Interstate 495, in Marlborough, Massachusetts (with the northern part of the mall in Berlin). The mall features JCPenney, Macy's (originally Filene's), and Sears as anchors.[1]

History[edit]

The mall opened in 1996 and was one of many that opened along the Interstate 495 corridor from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s.[2] Initially the mall's location seemed remote as it was located far from other retail. However, the mall was able to strategically target both the affluent and booming western crescent of suburbs of Boston, while simultaneously serving as the largest mall for the Worcester area.[3]

In comparison to other mid-range malls along the Interstate 495 corridor, the Solomon Pond Mall attempted to shoot for the upscale by courting some higher end tenants such as Victoria's Secret, Swarovski Crystal and several jeweler chains.

Some of the higher end tenants include, Coach and Apple Store.
