Shopping mall

Shopping mall

A shopping mall is a North American term for a large indoor shopping center, usually anchored by department stores. The term "mall" originally meant a pedestrian promenade with shops along it, but in the late 1960s, it began to be used as a generic term for the large enclosed shopping centers that were becoming commonplace at the time. In the U.K., such complexes are considered shopping centres, though "shopping center" covers many more sizes and types of centers than the North American "mall". Other countries may follow U.S. usage while still others follow U.K. usage. In Canadian English, and often in Australia and New Zealand, the term 'mall' may be used informally but 'shopping centre' or merely 'centre' will feature in the name of the complex. The term 'mall' is less-commonly a part of the name of the complex.

It is a major agricultural area, primarily producing wheat and legumes. Situated about 160 miles (260 km) north of the Oregon Trail, the region experienced rapid growth in the late 19th century.

History

Grading of the property began in October 1974;[2] the first stores to open at the site were, from the east end, Kmart, Rosauers, and Pay 'n Save (now Rite Aid) drugstore, all in 1976.[3] The mall had been in development since 1964,[4] and the land on which it was built was leased from the University of Idaho.[5] The land was previously owned and farmed by the Mix family for several generations.[6][7] Developer Earl D. McCarthy died in 1979,[8] and the ownership of the mall went to his children, Madeline Edgren and Mike McCarthy.[5] The main enclosed portion of the mall opened that October,[9][10][11] featuring J. C. Penney and The Bon Marché (now Macy's) department stores,[11][12] and Lamonts opened the following August.[13]

Throughout the 1990s and into the early 2000s, the mall underwent several changes in anchor stores. Rosauers became Excell Foods in 1990,[14][15] but was gone by 1992,[16] then Price Connection, which closed in 1995.[17] After closing in 1995, the Kmart space was expanded by 13,000 square feet (1,200 m2) on its east end and converted to Waremart, now known as WinCo Foods.[17] A year later, the mall structure itself underwent a renovation,[5] held a grand re-opening in November 1997,[18] and dropped the "Empire" from its name.[19] The J. C. Penney store closed in 1998 and became Troutman's Emporium the same year.[20]

An outparcel at the west end originally occupied by Ernst Home Centers became Office Depot and Hastings Entertainment in 1999.[21] Gottschalks purchased the Lamonts chain in 2000.[22][23] Emporium went out of business in 2003 and its space became Ross Stores two years later.[24] Gottschalks closed in January 2007 and was torn down for Bed Bath & Beyond and Old Navy;[25] Macy's closed in April 2016.[26] In 2016, the Office Depot space became Staples while Hastings Entertainment went out of business. In 2017, the Hastings Entertainment space became Marshalls.

In September 2020, Target announced plans to open a store in the space vacated by Macy's.[27] The store opened in October 2021.[28]
