Greenwood Park Mall
Greenwood Park Mall is the main shopping destination on the southside of Indianapolis, serving the nearby communities of Greenwood, Whiteland, Franklin and Center Grove. The mall offers both indoor and outdoor shops. The complex is the largest mall in the Southern Indiana region and amongst the biggest in the Indianapolis area.
Greenwood Park Mall has more than 140 stores and some larger stores include Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, JCPenney, Kohl's, Macy's, Von Maur, Old Navy, Dick's Sporting Goods and Sears, as well as a food court and a Regal Movie Theater complex.
Built on an 87-acre (350,000 m2) site by Atkinson & Company at a cost of $25 million, the Greenwood Shopping Center opened in 1966. In 1977 Melvin Simon & Associates purchased the mall for an undisclosed amount of money, and in 1980, after much renovation and expansion, it was reopened as the Greenwood Park Mall. By 1990 an average of 10 million shoppers a year (about 28,000 a day) were patronizing the Greenwood Park Mall. The mall is in the heart of the shopping district at the intersection of US 31 and County Line Road in Greenwood on the south side of Indianapolis. It is commonly associated with fellow central Indiana shopping malls also owned and operated by the Simon Property Group such as Circle Centre Mall, Washington Square Mall and Castleton Square.
Greenwood Park Mall underwent a major renovation to add a new "Lifestyle Shopping Mall" to the exterior of the Mall. The expansion officially opened on November 8, 2007.
