Southwest Plaza is an enclosed shopping mall in unincorporated Jefferson County, Colorado, immediately south of Denver. Littleton, Colorado is commonly indicated in the mall's postal address because its ZIP code is primarily associated with that city, which lies some two miles east. The mall has two levels with over 150 stores and a food court.
In 1987, The May Department Stores Company, then owners of May D&F, acquired The Denver Dry Goods Company; since May Company already operated a May D&F store at the mall, the Denver Dry Goods store was sold to J.C. Penney.
In 1998, the mall was sold by Southwest Properties Venture, a partnership between Denver developers Jordon Perlmutter, Samuel Primack, and Michael Cooper to General Growth Properties for $64 million.
Joslins was converted to Dillard's in 1998.
Montgomery Ward closed in 2001 as the chain shuttered the last of its stores nationwide.
In 2009, Steve & Barry's closed as the entire chain was shut down.
