Southridge Mall is a regional shopping mall located in the Milwaukee County suburbs of Greendale and Greenfield, Wisconsin. At 1.2 million square feet,(1.26 million) it is tied with the Fox River Mall in Grand Chute as the largest mall in the state (by square footage).[2] The mall is anchored by JCPenney, Kohl's, Macy's, and Boston Store. The fifth anchor, Sears closed in September 2017,[3] Kohl's is relocating to a mixed use development by the end of 2018,[4] and Boston Store will be closing in Summer 2018 due to liquidation.[5] The former Sears will be replaced by Dick's Sporting Goods and Round One Entertainment bowling alley.[6]

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]
