Westfield Oakridge, formerly known as Westfield Shoppingtown Oakridge and Oakridge Mall, is a shopping mall that was sold to Westfield America, Inc. in 1998, and was rebranded as "Westfield Shoppingtown Oakridge" soon after.[2]

The bankruptcy of Montgomery Ward in 2001 left an empty anchor slot at Oakridge until 2003, when Target demolished the building and constructed a new two-level store on the site. At the same time, Macy's added 75,000 square feet to its existing footprint, bringing its total square footage to more than 220,000 square feet.[3]

Westfield began a $150 million multi-phase expansion in the Summer of 2002 and was completed in late 2003.[4]

The bankruptcies and eventual closures of Borders and Linens n' Things brought two new anchors to the center: a Nordstrom Rack in place of Linens n' Things,[5][6] and a large-format Forever 21 in place of Borders.
