Stratford Square Mall is a shopping mall opened in 1981, located just off Army Trail Road and Gary Avenue in Bloomingdale, Illinois, a northwestern suburb of Chicago. The 1,300,000-square-foot (120,000 m2) mall currently has four anchor tenants, including Carson Pirie Scott, Kohl's (former MainStreet), Sears, and Burlington Coat Factory (former Montgomery Ward). Two anchor locations are currently vacant. The former Wieboldt's, which became a JC Penney in 1988 when Wieboldt's went bankrupt, has been vacant since 2014. The former Marshall Field's, which became a Macy's in 2006, closed on March 26, 2017 as part of a nationwide reduction in Macy's store portfolio.[2]

Feldman Mall Properties[edit]

New York-based Feldman Mall Properties acquired Stratford Square Mall in early 2005. After experiencing financial difficulties in 2008, Stratford Square is now their only mall holding.[3] Feldman Mall Properties renovated the existing 4-screen movie theater into a Cinemark Century Theater, which opened on July 4, 2007. The movie theater now has 16 all-digital screens, a cappucino bar, marble flooring, and stadium seating. [4] Shortly after, a small indoor Red Robin restaurant was added next to the new theater. In late October 2014, Red Robin officials stated their plan to remodel their restaurant to introduce their new Gourmet Burgers and Brews concept, which would feature both indoor and outdoor seating.[5] In October 2011, the computerized fountain in the central square next to the food court was replaced by a carousel, which is now located in the lower-level Burlington Coat Factory wing. The last major addition to the mall was Round One, which is an entertainment center that includes bowling, karaoke, arcade games, billiards, darts and ping pong. [6] Round One is a Japanese company that operates in California but is slowly making its way through the United States. The Stratford Square outpost is located on the lower level of the Carson Pirie Scott wing.
