Towne East Square is an enclosed, two-story shopping mall located in the eastern section[1] of Wichita, Kansas United States. It has 125 stores and restaurants in 1,169,167 square feet (108,619.2 m2) of gross leasable area.[2] Dillard's, JCPenney, Sears and Von Maur are the mall's anchor stores. The mall opened in 1975[3] and was the first large, modern, multi-level enclosed mall in Wichita. Its opening triggered a rapid decline of the downtown business district, which to date has failed to recover. The immediate vicinity of Towne East Square has been intensively developed and as a result is very congested, creating what amounts to a quasi-downtown for the east side of Wichita with in turn its own ongoing redevelopment.[4]
