HistoryEdit

Opened in 1988, the mall was developed by Homart Development Company and Herring Marathon. Original anchor stores were J. C. Penney, Dillard's, Mervyns, and Sears.[3] Foley's (bought out by Macy's in 2006) joined in 1994 as a fifth anchor.[4]

It expanded again in 2002 with a new wing featuring Galyan's (now Dick's Sporting Goods) and The Great Indoors.[5][6] The Great Indoors closed in 2003.[7]

When Mervyns closed in 2006, it was replaced with several new tenants, including Barnes & Noble, The Cheesecake Factory, and Forever 21.[8]
