History[edit]

Southridge opened in 1970 as the southern sister mall to Northridge Mall. Both malls were located on 76th Street, close to major east-west artery roads. Both were developed by Herb Kohl and Taubman Centers, Inc..

In 1988 the Kohl family sold its retail interests in Southridge and the mall was acquired by Western Development Corporation, a publicly traded real estate investment company specializing in regional malls. Southridge is now part of the Simon Property Group.

One of the mall's anchors was originally Gimbels. The store later became Marshall Field's, then H. C. Prange Co., which sold to Younkers. It was later subdivided among Cost Plus World Market, Steve & Barry's, and Linens 'n Things before the entire building became Macy's.[7]

In 2015, Sears Holdings spun off 235 of its properties, including the Sears at Southridge Mall, into Seritage Growth Properties.[8]
