South Hills Village is a two-level shopping mall located in the Pittsburgh suburbs of Bethel Park and Upper St. Clair. It was developed by the Oxford Development Co. as the first shopping complex in Greater Pittsburgh to be built as a fully enclosed structure. The two-level complex is currently owned by Simon Property Group, who acquired it in 1997. It is anchored by Dick's Sporting Goods, Macy's (formerly Lazarus and Horne's), Sears, and Target (formerly Gimbels, Kaufmans and Boscovs). The mall features over 130 specialty stores. The mall also houses a food court and several professional offices. South Hills Village was the largest in Greater Pittsburgh until the Monroeville Mall, also built by the Oxford Development Company, opened in 1969.
Businesses located just outside the mall include Eat 'N Park, AMC South Hills Village 10 (opened as Carmike 10 Theater), KeyBank (originally First Niagara Bank), and a Barnes & Noble Bookstore (This appears to be part of the mall, but is only accessible from outside.)
The vacant three-story Boscov's store (formerly Gimbel's and then Kaufmann's) has been converted for use by Target and Dick's Sporting Goods. This allowed Target to enter Pittsburgh's South Hills market where limited land for new development had precluded a new store. It also allowed Dick's Sporting Goods to open a much larger store to replace the small location formerly on the mall periphery. Target operates on an expanded first level of the space with Dick's Sporting Goods taking the second and third floors, though the third floor is only accessible from within the Dick's Sporting Goods store. Dick's Sporting Goods had its grand opening October 17, 2012 and Target opened March 6, 2013.
