White Mountain Mall is a shopping mall located in Rock Springs, Wyoming owned and managed by Brookfield Properties Retail Group. It is one of only three enclosed malls in the entire state of Wyoming. The mall, which opened in 1978, is located near Interstate 80/U.S. Route 30/191, and features over 40 stores.[1] Anchor stores include Petco, TJ Maxx, Ross Dress for Less, Murdoch's Ranch & Home Supply, and Jo-Ann Fabrics. The latter two opened in May 2013.[2] The White Mountain Mall is also home to the Star Stadium 11 & ARQ theater.

The mall opened in 1978 with JCPenney, Herberger's, Ernst Home & Garden and F.W. Woolworth Company among its tenants.[3] The Ernst Home & Garden space was later a Walmart, and then Flaming Gorge Harley-Davidson.[4]

The mall flooded on September 27, 2011, due to a water pipe bursting.[5] On January 12, 2016, JCPenney announced its store will be closing its doors in Spring 2016.

On October 30, 2016, TJ Maxx and in November 2016, Petco now collectively occupy the space that previously housed JCPenney.

On April 18, 2018, it was announced that Herberger's would also be closing as parent company The Bon-Ton Stores was going out of business. The store closed on August 29, 2018.[6]
