It is a shopping mall consisting of a drug store, gift shop, restaurants and various other stores. Unlike a traditional shopping mall, all the stores at Wall Drug operate under a single entity instead of being individually run stores. The New York Times has described Wall Drug as "a sprawling tourist attraction of international renown [that] takes in more than $10 million a year and draws some two million annual visitors to a remote town".
The small town drugstore made its first step towards fame when it was purchased by Ted Hustead in 1931. Hustead was a Nebraska native and pharmacist who was looking for a small town with a Catholic church in which to establish his business. He bought Wall Drug, located in a 231-person town in what he referred to as "the middle of nowhere", and strove to make a living. Business was very slow until his wife, Dorothy, got the idea to advertise free ice water to parched travellers heading to the newly-opened Mount Rushmore monument 60 miles (97 km) to the west. From that time on business was brisk. Wall Drug grew

An Art Deco landmark, the building was built between 1928 and 1930 by the Eaton's department store, and was designed by Ross and Macdonald (in association with Henry Sproatt), the Montreal architectural firm that also designed the Royal York Hotel and Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto, the Château Laurier Hotel in Ottawa, and the Montreal Eaton's store.
Eaton's began secretly assembling land at Yonge and College Streets in 1910 for a new store. The First World War put the plans on hold, but Eaton's retained the land.

The effort was unsuccessful, and Simpson's chose instead to expand its Queen Street store.
In 1928, Eaton's announced plans

It includes mostly upscale stores selling luxury brands, including Armani, Davidoff, L'Occitane, Hugo Boss, Tumi, Coach, Cole Haan, Thomas Pink, Tourneau, and Stuart Weitzman.

When it first opened in 2004, the Whole Foods Market at Columbus Circle sold liquor from an attached room near the cash registers away from the main shopping aisles. However, this configuration was in violation of New York's liquor licensing laws, which require grocery stores to have a separate street entrance to their liquor departments, ostensibly to prevent minors from buying alcohol. In 2005, Whole Foods settled with state authorities and closed its liquor operations at Columbus Circle, hoping to transfer its
The St. Enoch Centre is a shopping mall located in the central area of Glasgow, the largest city in Scotland. The Architects were the GMW Architects.

The present St Enoch subway station is now accessible by escalators, and is located just out of sight on the left hand side of the photograph.
Whilst the target of many architectural critics, the building is notable for its massive glass roof, which makes it the largest glass-covered enclosed area in Europe. Not only does this substantially reduce heating and lighting loads - the mall area is lit entirely by natural daylight in summer, whilst the solar heat generated by the roof means that mechanical heating is only required for a week on average per year - it also

Later, Montgomery Ward added a store near the Sears location, on the same side of the mall as Dillard's, but it was swiftly replaced by a Burlington Coat Factory.

Westland Center is an enclosed shopping mall located in the city of Westland, Michigan, an inner-ring suburb of Detroit. The mall features more than 100 inline stores, with JCPenney, Sears, Macy's and Kohl's serving as anchor stores.
Westland Center was developed by J.L. Hudson Corporation. It was designed by Victor Gruen Associates and Louis G. Redstone Associates.
Westland Center played a role in local history. During the early 1960s, the city of Livonia planned to annex the part of Nankin Township in which the mall was to be built. The shopping center eventually opened in 1965, joining Northland and Eastland malls in other Detroit Metro cities. In reaction to Livonia's annexation attempts, the people of Nankin Township voted to incorporate the remainder of the township as a city on May 16, 1966, known as the City of Westland, naming it after the mall.
During its opening, the mall's anchors were a four-story Hudson's department store, a Kresge store, and a Kroger supermarket. Kroger was closed and demolished to make way for a J.C. Penney department store in 1976. As the department store was built by A. Alfred Taubman, he went on with his company to build the other Taubman malls.

The mall was closed in May 2008, with only the Sears remaining from the old property.
Livonia Mall opened in 1964 as the second mall to be constructed in Livonia. Livonia Mall was one of the first two enclosed shopping malls to open in the state of Michigan.

It had four large wings, shaped much like two overlapping "L's". In the central area of the mall was a JCPenney and the food court coined "The Market". The other wings each had one anchor and one junior anchor: a northwest wing, originally anchorless until Mervyns filled the vacant pad in the early 80's, along with a HJ Wilson Catalog Showroom as junior anchor, a southwest wing with Foley's and Palais Royal as junior anchor, a southeast wing with Montgomery Ward and junior anchor Bealls, and a northeast wing bearing a Sears and junior anchor The Fair.

It stands on six-and-a-half city blocks and is adjacent to the city's historic Gaslamp Quarter and is currently anchored by Macy's and Nordstrom. It was the first successful downtown retail center since the rise of suburban shopping centers decades earlier.
The 1972 proposal for the shopping center and a redevelopment district arose out of plans to "refurbish San Diego's historic town plaza", Horton Plaza. Due to numerous setbacks and resistance from preservation groups, construction did not begin until 1982.. The plaza is named for Alonzo Horton, who was largely responsible for the location of downtown San Diego.
Horton Plaza was the $140,000,000 centerpiece of a downtown redevelopment project run by The Hahn Company, and is the first example of architect Jon Jerde's so-called "experience architecture". When it opened in August 1985, it was a risky and radical departure from the standard paradigm of mall design. Its mismatched levels, long one-way

The Commons at Federal Way (formerly SeaTac Mall) is a regional shopping mall located in Federal Way, Washington and is the only covered shopping center in the city . The current owners, Steadfast Commercial Properties, changed the name to The Commons at Federal Way. Ongoing improvements to the shopping center are expected to improve sales upon an expected $25 to $30 per square foot by year’s end.
The original developer was Harry Newman of Newman Properties. SeaTac Mall opened in 1975 on a forested, swampy pasture that was the homestead of Mabel Webb Alexander, who arrived in Washington in 1879 and died at age 96. For many years the original SeaTac mall used a thunderbird in the logo and had a mascot, Thudius T. Thunderbird.
The original Cinnabon opened in the SeaTac Mall in December 1985.
Today, The Commons at Federal Way has over 100 stores and features Macy's, Sears, and Target, as well as food court and a Century Theater complex.
Westfield Valley Fair, formerly named and known as Valley Fair, is an upscale indoor shopping mall in Silicon Valley owned by the Westfield Group. It is located at the corner of Winchester and Stevens Creek Boulevards, straddling the border of San Jose and Santa Clara, United States. The eastern portion of the mall (including Nordstrom and Macy's women) is located in San Jose, and the western portion (including Macy's Mens & Home and Sports Authority) is located in Santa Clara.
Westfield Valley Fair is one of the largest malls in Northern California, and is directly across the street from another large retail development, Santana Row. It has the highest-sales volume in the state with $809 per square foot. The shopping center consists of 194 stores, a seventeen-outlet food court, nine restaurants, and is anchored by two Macy's stores and Nordstrom.
Westfield Valley Fair is unique in that it replaced two separate 1950s era shopping centers. The original Valley Fair Shopping Center, opened in 1956, was confined to the eastern side of the property in San Jose. It was developed and anchored by Macy's and included roughly 40 other stores including Joseph Magnin in an outdoor plaza. At
Arden Fair Mall is a two-level regional shopping mall located on Arden Way in Sacramento, California, USA. It consists of over 165 tenants, encompassing over 1,100,000 square feet (100,000 m) of retail space. It is anchored by JCPenney, Macy's, Nordstrom and Sears. The mall is owned by Fulcrum Property and is operated by Macerich.
Arden Fair was originally built in 1957 as a single-level outdoor mall with Sears as the original anchor, despite being physically separated from the rest of the mall. Hale's, the second original anchor, opened four years later in 1961, which was later converted to Weinstock's. By the 1970s, Arden Fair was converted into an indoor mall.
In 1989, a major structural renovation and physical face-lift occurred, which more than doubled the size of the mall. It added a second story, a food court and brought the first Nordstrom department store to Sacramento. The old Sears building was demolished to make way for this expansion and Sears was relocated to a new building that finally connected the store to the mall. In 1994, JCPenney opened up as the mall's fourth anchor, replacing a United Artists movie theater that was relocated to Market Square at Arden Fair, an
Walden Galleria is an enclosed shopping mall located in the town of Cheektowaga, New York. Walden Galleria comprises more than 1,600,000 square feet (150,000 m) of retail space, with 250 stores on two levels, including a food court and a movie theater. Anchor stores include Best Buy, Dick's Sporting Goods, DSW Shoe Warehouse, JCPenney, Lord & Taylor, H&M, Macy's, Old Navy, and Sears. The mall is owned and managed by The Pyramid Companies of Syracuse, New York, the same management firm that developed it.
Opened in 1989, Walden Galleria initially featured national chains JCPenney and Sears, along with regional chain Bonwit Teller, and local chains Sibley's, L. L. Berger, and The Sample as its major tenants; the bankruptcies of these chains in the 1990s made way for several big-box stores. Anchors Lord & Taylor and Galyan's (now Dick's Sporting Goods) were later additions to the existing mall property, opening in 1992 and 2000, respectively. The most recent renovation to Walden Galleria comprised an extensive $60 million renovation between 2006 and 2008, which added several new tenants, as well as a new theater.
Walden Galleria was developed by The Pyramid Companies, a New York-based
Cross Creek Mall is a regional shopping mall located in Fayetteville, North Carolina, on the 401 Bypass between Morganton Road and the All-American Freeway. The mall contains over 100 stores and covers over 1,000,000 sq ft (93,000 m). of retail space. Its anchors include Belk, Macy's, J. C. Penney, and Sears. The mall is owned by CBL & Associates Properties.
The mall's land was bought in 1970 by Henry Faison, a Charlotte-based developer. The All American Freeway was planned at the time, but the area was predominantly farmland. The freeway began construction in May 1974, nine months before the mall opened on February 26, 1975. The mall opened with five anchors, three of which were lured from downtown Fayetteville: Sears, Belk Hensdale, and JC Penney; Miller and Rhodes and Thalhimer's, were new to the area. Miller and Rhoads closed in 1985. Thalhimer's became Hecht's in 1992, which in turn became Macy's in 2006.
All four anchors have two floors.
Gwinnett Place Mall is a regional shopping center located in Duluth, Georgia, in Gwinnett County. For the first 16 years, Gwinnett Place was the leading mall in the region, drawing shoppers from as far away as South Carolina and centering what was then one of the fastest growing counties in the nation until the opening of Mall of Georgia and Discover Mills.
When it first opened in early 1984, its original anchors were Rich's, Davison's and Sears. In 1986, Mervyn's joined the mall and Davison's was changed over to Macy's. Further anchor shuffling occurred in 1993 and 1995 when Parisian joined the mall and Mervyn's left the mall, respectively. Macy's and Rich's joined teams after years to form Rich's-Macy's until 2006 when they separated and Macy's took over. JCPenney took over the Mervyn's spot the following year. In these aspects, the mall developed on a very similar fashion as Town Center Mall on the northwest side of Atlanta, and were in many ways sister malls. However, one of the distinct features about Gwinnett Place Mall is the Macy's (former Rich's), which features an exterior almost entirely covered in mirrored glass.
The mall was seriously challenged by the opening of Mall
Seaview Square Mall was an indoor shopping mall located in Ocean Township, in Monmouth County, New Jersey, United States, that has been repurposed as a power center. The 856,000-square-foot (79,500 m) mall, located at the intersection of Route 35 and Route 66, was originally constructed in 1977 as an indoor mall. It faced stiff competition from the more upscale Monmouth Mall, located five miles (8 km) further north on Route 35. One of its four anchors never opened, and several smaller stores, and Stern's and Steinbach, two of its anchors, were victims of the then-indoor mall's state of decline into a dead mall.
The mall's history can be traced back to the 1950s, when Sears relocated its downtown Asbury Park store to a more suburban site on Route 66 at the site of the present-day Neptune World Class Shoprite, just west of the Asbury Circle.
Following the 1970 Asbury Park riots, many businesses left Asbury Park's downtown. Thus, planning for Seaview Square began at the site across the street from the Sears, behind a small cinema, which was later renamed the "Seaview Square Cinema" and absorbed as part of the mall's property. The site was originally a landfill from 1941 to 1975 and
The Mall at the Source (also known as The Source Mall or simply The Source) is a shopping mall located in Westbury, New York, USA, on Old Country Road and Merchants Concourse (Ellison Avenue), currently managed by Newmark Grubb Knight Frank and owned by lenders. Until August 2012, the mall was managed and co-owned by Simon Property Group. It has many stores including Old Navy and H&M. It also has restaurants such as The Cheesecake Factory and P. F. Chang's China Bistro. The mall was named for its former anchor store Fortunoff (which used the phrase "The Source" in advertising for the chain), which the mall was built around and which closed in June 2009.
With the closure of Fortunoff, Steve and Barry's (which closed in early 2009), and Circuit City (which closed in March 2009) since 2009 began, three large anchor stores have become vacant. The drop of foot traffic by the loss of the anchors has caused other stores, such as Forever 21, Starbucks, Ayhan's Shish Kebab, Ranch 1, and others, to pull out from the mall. Simon Property Group and unnamed co-owners of the Mall at the Source defaulted on a $124 million balloon interest-only mortgage in March 2009. It was purchased by a
Tysons Galleria is an upscale three-level super-regional mall owned by General Growth Properties located at 2001 International Drive, McLean, Virginia, in Tysons Corner.
The mall opened in 1988 across Virginia Route 123 from Tysons Corner Center as part of the $500 million ($900 million in 2008 dollars) office development The Corporate Office Centre at Tysons II, leading local residents to refer to Tysons Galleria as "Tysons II". It was intended to be the upscale companion of Tysons Corner Center, but failed to attract high-end boutiques due to the poor economy of the time and a major expansion and renovation of the existing high-traffic Tysons Corner Center across the street, which included the East Coast's first Nordstrom store. It was previously known as the Galleria at Tysons II, but from its opening to the mid-1990s, either a "T" or an "a" were missing from the main entrance sign. It had annual sales of $262 per square foot, below the market average for malls in the Washington metropolitan area in the early 1990s.
The Galleria was renovated to appear more like a "European streetscape" and expanded in 1997 by its new Chicago-based owners, who had its name changed to Tysons

The Silver City Galleria opened in 1992. It was planned and developed by The Pyramid Companies, around the same time that several other malls in the region - Independence Mall and Berkshire Mall - were being built. When it first opened, Silver City was seemingly situated in the middle of nowhere; the surrounding area was an open desert, with little to no other developments. However, its strategic location at the intersection of two major freeways allowed it to draw traffic from cities in all directions. The modern mall quickly became a popular shopping destination in the southeastern Massachusetts area, bringing fatal competition to many smaller local malls such as the

Calhoun Square is an indoor shopping mall located in the Uptown district of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The mall was built at the southeast corner of Hennepin Avenue and West Lake Street in the early 1980s. Neighborhood activists opposed to the project started the "Dump Updale" campaign. "Up" referred to Uptown; "dale" was a reference to suburban shopping malls in the Twin Cities whose names end in "dale" (e.g. Southdale Center, Ridgedale Center). The atrium-style indoor mall was built from a group of older buildings in an early 1980s style of redevelopment. The building was finished in 1983, although parts of the building are older, including the Geanakoplos Building (1917).
The musician Prince wrote a song titled "Calhoun Square", released on disc two of his "Crystal Ball" CD.

Lake Cunningham Park is an artificial lake in East San Jose, California, near the Eastridge Mall and Eastridge Transit Center. It is not a geological feature recognized in the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS). It is located on Capitol Expressway and stands next to Reid-Hillview Airport. The Lake Cunningham Skate Park and Raging Waters theme park are also in Lake Cunningham Park.
The Lake Cunningham – Eastridge Mall area was one of Santa Clara Valley's three permanent wetland complex called "lagunas". The area was called Laguna Secayre during the initial Euro-American settlement (1769–1850). Laguna Secayre covered a much larger area than Lake Cunningham Park does now.
The soil of the surrounding area is a heavy, dark clay; this indicates that the area was routinely flooded.
Due to intense urbanization in the surrounding hill areas, the storm water that historically exited the canyons and percolated through the gravel below ground was channeled into pipes below the streets to Thompson Creek and Lake Cunningham. This has led to an increase in runoff during the winter storms.
South Park Mall is a shopping mall located on the south side of San Antonio in the U.S. state of Texas. The mall serves the communities on the south side of the city, with a Hispanic theme inside the mall. It is anchored by J.C. Penney, Macy's and Sears.

In 1996, Sears moved from a store on Military Drive to the former Phar-Mor. Foley's (now Macy's) was added as a fourth anchor in 2000.

Bal Harbour Shops is an upscale open-air shopping mall in Bal Harbour, a wealthy suburb of Miami, Florida, known internationally for its collection of luxury retail. Bal Harbour Shops is one of the few remaining family-owned malls in the nation. For a business that is willing to lease, there is a two year waiting list at the mall, which has operated at 100% occupancy for more than two decades.
The conceptual plan of the open-air shopping center was envisioned by Stanley Whitman on the site of a former United States Army barracks and World War II prisoner of war camp. He abandoned the conventional enclosed air-conditioned mall concept, firing architect Victor Gruen, and hiring the South Florida architectural firm Herbert H. Johnson & Associates. Whitman paid $2 per square foot for the land.
Bal Harbour Shops officially opened in 1965 with its first tenant being toy retailer, FAO Schwarz, which operated a store in the mall until its bankruptcy in 2000. Until the 1970s no upscale fashion brands had boutiques there aside from Bonwit Teller, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus, but Gucci was convinced to open its 5th US store there. After that an influx of major brands opened, including

For sale: everything. goat-leather motorcycle jackets, Italian bathroom sinks, hand-made violins, longcase clocks, colonial-style desks, Jaguars, diapers. And that's barely getting started. It takes about two days to explore [...] With 230 escalators, more than 1,000 shops, restaurant space the size of two football fields, and a skating rink – the Art Deco mall is a testament in glass and steel to the communist party's desire to create a stable, happy, middle-income consumer class.

Place Montréal Trust is a shopping mall in Downtown Montreal, located west of the Eaton Centre, at the corner of Saint Catherine Street and McGill College Avenue. With over 320,000 square feet (29,729 m) of stores and services, Place Montreal Trust attracts 14 million visitors each year. Its indoor water fountain has the highest water spout in North America at 30 meters in height. Place Montreal Trust is linked to the Underground City of Montreal.
The Maison Astral skyscraper is part of the Place Montreal Trust complex.
Place Montreal Trust was originally proposed to house a concert hall, in the mall's mezzanine and basement level. However, this design called for an office tower that would partially obstruct the view of Mount Royal from McGill College Street. The plan encountered public opposition, including from architectural activist Phyllis Lambert, a member of the board of directors of Cadillac Fairview, who participated in protests against her own company's plan. This idea of a concert hall on McGill College was abandoned in favour of a design for Place Montreal Trust with a wider setback, as part of a redesign of McGill College Street as a widened scenic avenue.

Tampa Bay Center's main corridor was splashed in sunlight, a large portion of the roof was actually constructed with skylights; a bright and sunny day outdoors meant a bright and sunny day indoors considered to be an inviting feature at a time when many malls were being built with dropped ceilings and finished with darker colors.The mall featured exposed, light-colored truss ceilings over the main corridor, tan-brown floor tiles, floor-based water fountains, and trees intermittently planted on the bottom floor of the main corridor, growing upwards toward the skylights. The open-and-airy interior was further augmented by what was thought to be one of the mall's most important

Bamberger's became Macy's in 1986, when the chain was phased out in favor of the Macy's name. By 1989, expansion plans were discussed. These plans would have added an additional floor, more stores, a parking deck and an additional anchor store. The plans were scaled back slightly to gain township approval because area residents were apprehensive about the traffic that the new expansion would generate. Due to the recession of the mid-1990s this major expansion never took place.
In 1999, a smaller expansion took place that added a Barnes
Buchanan Galleries is a shopping centre located in the central area of Glasgow, the largest city in Scotland. Construction began in 1996 and the building opened to the public on 31 March 1999. Costing £250 million, it is one of the largest city centre shopping developments in the United Kingdom, boasting an internal retail space of nearly 56,000 m². The building adjoins onto the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, and could be classified as the first urban megastructure to be built in Glasgow city centre since the infamous Anderston Centre of the early 1970s.

Crossroads Mall is a super regional shopping mall and trade area located in south Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The name of the mall was chosen because it lies at the major intersection of I-35 and I-240, a major crossroads of the city. Today, the mall faces many problems due to the vacancy of all four anchor stores. The property was foreclosed on in April 2009 and fell under the ownership of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York due to the Bear Stearns bailout. The mall was part of a portfolio of Bear Stearns assets, including $5.5 billion in commercial loans that the Fed used to secure $29 billion to lend to JPMorgan Chase to buy Bear Stearns.
On September 14, 2011, the mall was purchased by Raptor Properties, LLC for $3.5 million, far below the original asking price of $24 million. Although the sale included only 762,532 square feet (70,841.5 m), as several other parts of the property were previously sold to other investors. Before, the foreclosure Crossroads Mall was one of two malls in Oklahoma with more than 1,200,000 square feet (110,000 m). The other is Woodland Hills Mall in Tulsa.
Crossroads Mall was opened in February 1974 with anchor stores John A. Brown, Dillard's,

A Jordan Marsh anchor store was added to the west end, which opened in November 1966.
A massive construction project, initiated in late 1969, doubled the size of the mall by twinning it (leaving the huge Burdine's in the middle), and adding a wing of fully enclosed retail onto the east end. Moreover, the existing courts and

Mall St. Matthews is a Louisville, Kentucky shopping mall located at 5000 Shelbyville Road in the eastern suburb of St. Matthews.
Developed by the Rouse Company and opened in 1962 and originally named The Mall, it was the first enclosed suburban shopping mall in the state of Kentucky. Located next to the Watterson Expressway, the mall had A & P, Kaufman-Straus, and Rose's as its anchor stores. The J.C. Penny's department was added in a later mall expansion in the 1960s. The mall's features included a children's play area (including some turtle characters to climb on) near Rose's (which is now a food court), an oversize chess set near Kaufman-Straus, and numerous fountains. The name of the mall was changed to The Mall in St. Matthews as other malls were built, but the mall gradually declined with stores moving to newer malls. In the late 1980s the mall name was simplified to Mall St. Matthews and remodeled to include a food court, a new wing dedicated to stores owned by Limited Brands, and expanded the former Kaufman-Straus store (which had become both a Stewart Dry Goods and L. S. Ayres before closing) to accommodate a Bacon's department store which relocated from its freestanding
Northgate Mall is a regional shopping mall located off Interstate 85 and Gregson Street (exit 176) in northern Durham, North Carolina, United States. The mall is in close proximity to Duke University and downtown Durham, between the Trinity Park and Walltown neighborhoods.
Northgate opened in 1960 as a traditional open air strip shopping center developed by W. Kenan Rand. The original center ran perpendicular to W. Club Blvd. Original tenants included Colonial Stores, Roses, Kerr Drug and eventually a cinema opened in 1962. In 1973 facing increased competition from other enclosed shopping centers, developers decided to add a Sears and Thalhimers department store and build an enclosure connecting the two stores. In 1986, Thalhimers relocated its store, building a new store in front of its original store.
After Hecht's took over Thalhimers, a new wing was built where the original section of Northgate shopping center stood. This new wing included a brand new Hecht's department store at one end and a new food court, called the food gallery. The former Hecht's/Thalhimer's building went to Hudson Belk. Hudson Belk left the mall in 2005, and that store was replaced by a Phoenix Theaters,

During construction it emerged that two Wilmorite executives had paid Danbury's then-mayor, James Dyer, $60,000 in cash, sometimes concealed in newspapers. They claimed he demanded the money to assure his support for the mall. The allegations contributed to Dyer's defeat for re-election in 1987.

Port Place began as a two-store strip mall that was built in 1952 on the site of the former Nanaimo Sports Grounds in the downtown area, with Simpsons-Sears and Safeway as the original anchor tenants.
The existing facility was expanded in 1967 by attaching an indoor mall (the second one in Nanaimo, after Northbrook Mall, which opened in 1966), which was then named Harbour Park Mall.

Dixie Square Mall was an enclosed shopping mall located in Harvey, Illinois, United States, at the junction of 151st Street and the Dixie Highway. It stood vacant for over 30 years, more than twice as long as it was in business. It was famous for having been used, both inside and out, for the mall chase scene in the movie The Blues Brothers. More recently, it achieved notoriety because of a growing Internet cult following (including local urban exploration groups) dedicated to covering the mall's deteriorating condition. Like other "dead malls," it had been characterized by high vacancy rates and low patronage, which led to its closure. However, while other dead malls were redeveloped or demolished, Dixie Square stood out due to its extensive neglect, vandalism damage, and storied history.
Since the mall closed, various plans had been made to demolish or redevelop the property, though most never came to fruition. The first plan to demolish the mall was developed in the late 1970s, but the filming of The Blues Brothers prevented this from happening. The mall was then left to decay, due in no small part to a lack of funds (the blighted town of Harvey owned the property itself for the

Most outparcel locations around Valley View Mall have been developed into restaurants, retail stores, offices, and hotels. Major surrounding stores include Ashley Furniture, Dick's Sporting Goods, Best Buy, Grand Home Furnishings, Wal-Mart, and Target. Regal Cinemas has a 16 screen movie theater with stadium seating at an outparcel location, which replaced a smaller six screen cinema inside the mall.
The land that became Valley View Mall was a farm owned by the Huff family until the early 1980s. The sizable farm was unusual in that it was located within the city limits of Roanoke and directly beside Interstate 581. During a flight into Roanoke Regional Airport (then called Woodrum Field) in 1976, Charlotte, North Carolina-based developer Henry Faison noticed the property and immediately realized its prime location beside Interstate 581 and a short distance from Interstate 81.

It is home to four major department stores, over 175 specialty shops and boutiques, and a food court. It is approximately 1,310,000 square feet (1.31 million).

Despite the mall managements best efforts, and while Brea, nearby Yorba Linda, and the northern end of Fullerton are generally considered affluent, they are not on par with the likes of Newport Beach and as such the Brea Mall does not warrant an ultra high end anchor.
The mall opened in 1978. Originally, the mall was anchored by Sears & May Company California. A couple of years later The Broadway was added and Nordstrom constructed their second California store. J. W. Robinson's and an all-new replacement Nordstrom (larger store) was then

Alberni Mall was an indoor shopping mall located in Port Alberni, British Columbia. Beginning in the fall of 2007, the mall underwent reformatting as an outdoor shopping centre following renovation and redevelopment of the former mall complex, and it will most likely also be renamed as part of its updating.

The proposition received support from then-Port Alberni mayor Jim Robertson, the city's council, the Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District and major retailers. A twin movie theatre and two banks were included as part of the proposed mall's original plans, but those plans were dropped prior to the beginning of the construction phase.
The mall's site, a then-wooded area located on the southeast corner of Johnston and Cherry Creek Roads, was cleared in the summer of 1978 and construction began in August that year. The mall was completed and

The Oracle is a large indoor shopping and leisure mall, located on the banks of the River Kennet on the site of a 17th century workhouse of the same name in the town of Reading in the English county of Berkshire. It was developed by, and is owned by, a joint venture of Hammerson and the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority.
The Oracle takes its name from the 17th century Oracle workhouse built by funds from a local man John Kendrick. This once occupied a small part of the site now occupied by the shopping centre.
