Opened in 1983, Foothills Mall is the only shopping mall in suburban Blount County, part of the Knoxville Metropolitan Area.[2] The mall was originally anchored by Maryville-based Proffitt's, a regional department store; Miller's, another regional department store that was a division of Allied Stores; JCPenney; and Sears, which closed in February 2019. Proffitt's and Miller's no longer exist. The original Proffitt's space is now used by Belk, while the former Miller's/Hess's was demolished in 2011 to accommodate a new movie theater.

The mall was renovated in 2006.[3]

On June 4, 2020, JCPenney announced that it would close in October 2020 as part of a plan to close 154 stores nationwide.[4] After JCPenney closed, AMC Theatres, Belk, and TJ Maxx are the only remaining anchor stores left.
