Tyrone Square (also referred to as Tyrone Square Mall) is an enclosed shopping mall in St. Petersburg, Florida. Opened in 1972, it features Dick's Sporting Goods, Dillard's, DSW, J. C. Penney, Macy's, and PetSmart as its anchor stores.

History[edit]

Tyrone Square opened in 1972 by Edward J. DeBartolo Corporation, with Sears, J. C. Penney, the first Florida location of J. W. Robinson's, and Maas Brothers, which was their third to be located in a shopping mall (their first and second mall stores were at Edison Mall and WestShore Plaza, respectively).[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]

Robinson's became Maison Blanche in 1987,[4] which in turn then sold its store and six others to Dillard's in 1991.[5] Also 1991, Maas Brothers was acquired by Burdines, who operated a freestanding store in St. Petersburg near Tyrone Square.[6] That store closed after the merger and consolidated its operation with the Tyrone Square location. Burdines then became Macy's in 2005.[7] Mall expansion in 1998 brought a food court and a Borders Books & Music store (now Old Navy).[8] The long-standing Gap closed in 2015, with a toys and games store taking its place. In 2015, Sears Holdings spun off 235 of its properties, including the Sears at Tyrone Square Mall, into Seritage Growth Properties.[9] The Cobb Luxury 10 Theaters opened in 2016, with 10 theaters and 1,200 seats. It is located in an adjacent yet detached building near JCPenney.

On November 16, 2016, Sears announced that it would close its location on January 28, 2017 because of a redevelopment project by Seritage that brought in PetSmart, Lucky's Market, Five Below, and Dick's Sporting Goods.[10] Outparcels on the Seritage site include Lee Nails, Nitrogen Ice Cream, Verizon Wireless, Chili's, Romano's Macaroni Grill, Pollo Tropical, and LongHorn Steakhouse.
