Stonebriar Centre, sometimes referred to as Stonebriar Mall, is a mid-range shopping mall located at the intersection of Preston Road (SH 289) and the Sam Rayburn Tollway (SH 121) in Frisco, Texas, U.S.. It contains 4 major department store anchor tenants, a 24-screen AMC movie theater, 2 major restaurants, a Dave & Buster's, and soon, Texas's first Kidzania.

History[edit]

In 1988, Homart, then a subsidiary of Sears, planned on putting a million square foot mall in Frisco, which was a town of about 6,000 people at the time.[2]

When Plano city officials learned of Homart's plan, they offered $10 million if the company would move its planned mall across the road into their city limits. Frisco lobbied to keep the planned mall and was able to work out tax incentives to close the deal. Plano then convinced another company, General Growth Properties, to place a mall within their city limits. In 1995, General Growth acquired Homart who had already signed an agreement with Frisco.[3] The City of Frisco made a final offer to General Growth of a half-cent sales tax rebate, property tax abatement for ten years, and infrastructure improvements in and around the mall. Plano continued to lobby hard for the new mall and Frisco eventually upped its sales-tax grant. Frisco finally won the fight and on August 4, 2000, the mall opened.[4]

In July 2013, the ice rink at the mall was closed.[5]

In 2015, Sears Holdings spun off 235 of its properties, including the Sears at Stonebriar Centre, into Seritage Growth Properties.[6]

In 2017, Carlo's Bake Shop opened at the mall.[7]

In May 2018, a teenager was arrested for planning to commit a mass shooting at the mall.[8][9]

KidZania is opening in fall 2019.[10]

In January 2019, Sears closed its doors as part of Sears Holdings filing for Bankruptcy.[11]

In April 2019, Apple Store closed its store at the mall and relocated to the Galleria Dallas.
