The original Hammond Square Mall opened in 1977 with two anchors, D. H. Holmes (later purchased and converted to Dillard’s) and Sears along with two levels of specialty tenants. In 1979, JCPenney was added as the third anchor to complete the 431,000 square foot mall. In 2007, Stirling Properties purchased the shopping center began the redevelopment of the mall into an open-air power and lifestyle shopping center.
The new Hammond Square celebrated its grand opening in October 2009 with over 850,000 square feet, nearly double its original size, with over 35 different stores and restaurants.
The typical open-air storefront would be greatly enhanced if there was a canvas awning shielding the entrance and/or showcase windows
Sucks that they replaced the mall with this ugly strip mall. The Hammond square mall used to have a really cool interior.
