Westfield Sunrise, commonly known as 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 with JCPenney (now closed), Gertz (later Stern's, now Sears), Macy's, and E. J. Korvette (later Abraham & Straus, then Sterns, then Walmart, now Dick's Sporting Goods and Dave & Buster's). It was remodeled in 1991 and it was acquired by the Westfield Group in 2005.[2]

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 JCPenney Stores the liquidation sales began on May 22, 2017, instead of April 17, 2017, the store closed on July 31, 2017.[4]

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.
