Wyoming Valley Mall is a 912,027 sq ft (84,730.1 m2) shopping mall located in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. It is owned and operated by the Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust. It opened in 1971, shortly before the Hurricane Agnes disaster.

The mall currently consists of over 90 stores, including anchors The Bon-Ton, JC Penney, Sears, and two Macy's locations. The main Macy's location opened as local retailer Zollinger-Harned, which converted to Hess's and then to Kaufmann's. The Macy's Men's & Home store opened as McCrory, before conversion to Kaufmann's Home Store.

The mall underwent a major renovation which was completed in late 2006. It has multiple chain restaurants along its beltway (Wyoming Valley Mall Road) and inside, including the food court between Bon-Ton and Sears.[2]
