Sunrise Mall,[1] is a shopping mall located in East Massapequa, New York. The mall opened on August 30, 1972 as the first 2-level shopping center on Long Island, and was originally anchored by JCPenney (now closed), Gertz (later Stern's, now Sears, which is among the last of less than thirty stores), Macy's, and E. J. Korvette (later Abraham & Straus, then Stern's, then Walmart, now Dick's Sporting Goods, Raymour & Flanigan, and Dave & Buster's). It was remodeled in 1991 and it was acquired by the Westfield Group in 2005.[2]

In May 2012, XSport Fitness opened its doors for the first time.

Walmart closed its store in the mall on March 6, 2015.[3]

On March 17, 2017, it was announced that JCPenney would be closing their store here and liquidation sales were expected to begin on April 17, 2017. However, on April 13, 2017, it was announced that due to more shoppers coming to the store, the liquidation sales began on May 22, 2017 instead of April 17, 2017, and the store closed on July 31, 2017.[4]

On August 4, 2020, it was announced that the mall would be going back to its original name, Sunrise Mall.[5]

On January 4, 2021. Sunrise Mall was purchased by Urban Edge Properties from Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield for 29.7 million dollars.

Nassau Inter-County Express (NICE) buses that serve the mall are the n19 (Freeport-Sunrise Mall via Merrick Road), n54 (Hempstead-Sunrise Mall via Washington Avenue), n55 (Hempstead-Sunrise Mall via Jerusalem Avenue), n71 (Hempstead-Sunrise Mall via Hempstead Turnpike), and the n80 (Sunrise Mall-Hicksville via Hicksville Road). The n19 and n80 run rush hours only and the n54 does not run on Sundays, while the n55 and n71 run seven days a week.

Two Suffolk County Transit (SCT) buses, the S20 (Sunrise Mall-Babylon) and S33 (Sunrise Mall-Hauppauge), also serve the mall, with the latter running seven days a week.
