The Whitehall Mall is an enclosed shopping mall located in Whitehall Township, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania in the United States.

The mall is located north of Allentown, on MacArthur Road at its intersection with Grape Street. It is located directly across Grape Street from the Lehigh Valley Mall. The Whitehall Mall was previously managed by Simon Property Group and jointly owned by Simon (38%), and PREIT (62%).[3][4] Washington Prime Group and PREIT later jointly owned the mall, with PREIT selling its share on December 2, 2014.[5]

When the Whitehall Mall opened in 1966, it was the first enclosed shopping center north of Philadelphia,[6] and its popularity led to the rise of a sprawling retail district along MacArthur Road that continued to expand into the early 1990s. In 1998, the Whitehall Mall underwent extensive renovations.[6]

The mall is anchored by Bed Bath & Beyond, buybuy BABY, Gold's Gym, Kohl's, Michaels, Raymour & Flanigan, and Sears.
