Westland Mall is an enclosed shopping mall in West Burlington, Iowa. Opened in 1977, it is anchored by Marshalls, and two Younkers stores - both closing in 2018. It is managed by Spinoso Real Estate Group.

History[edit]

General Growth Properties began building Westland Mall in 1976. Original tenants included JCPenney, Younkers, Woolworth, Kirlin's Hallmark, County Seat, Karmelkorn, Bresler's Ice Cream, and Osco Drug.[2] The mall opened for business on March 30, 1977, comprising more than 40 stores.[3] In 1981, Woolworth converted the store to its Woolco division, before closing it in 1983.[4] The space was later occupied by a furniture store.

L&H Realty bought the mall in 1998, and sold it to GK Development in 2004.[5] Marshalls opened an anchor store at the mall in October 2013.[6] In 2015, JCPenney announced that it would close its Westland Mall store along with 38 other stores in the United States.[7]
