Tyrone Square Mall is an enclosed shopping mall in St. Petersburg, Florida. Opened in 1972, it features Dillard's, J. C. Penney, Macy's, and Sears as its anchor stores.

History[edit]

Tyrone Square was opened in 1972 by Edward J. DeBartolo Corporation, featuring four anchor stores: Sears, J. C. Penney, Maas Brothers, and the first Florida location of J. W. Robinson's.[2] At its opening, the mall featured more than 110 stores, including Hickory Farms, Chess King, Thom McAn, McCrory, Spencer Gifts, Bresler's Ice Cream, Hot Sam pretzels, Orange Julius, Kinney Shoes, Hallmark Cards, Casual Corner, Waldenbooks, and a six-screen movie theater.[3] The Barefoot Mailman opened in 1986. Robinson's became Maison Blanche in 1987,[4] and Dillard's four years later.[5] Maas Brothers became Burdines in 1991 as well.[6] Mall expansion in 1998 brought a food court and a Borders Books & Music store.[7] Burdines became Burdines-Macy's in 2003, then simply Macy's in 2005.
