Harford Mall - Bel Air
The Harford Mall is a shopping mall owned by CBL & Associates Properties that is located near the junction of Maryland Route 24 and U.S. Route 1, about 32 miles (51 km) north of Baltimore, in Bel Air, Maryland. Its anchors include Macy's and Sears. It is the only shopping mall in Harford County, Maryland. The mall was built on the previous site of the Bel Air Racetrack.
Originally opened in 1973 by Mid Atlantic Realty Trust, it featured an E.J. Korvette and Montgomery Ward as its anchor stores. Korvette became Hutzler's then Hecht's. Another early tenant was an F.W. Woolworth Company store in center court. Sears replaced Montgomery Ward. The Harford Mall was purchased by CBL & Associates Property, Inc. in 2003 for $71 million. Hochschild Kohn was opened during the first expansion of the mall. The store opened in October 1977. This later became the original food court.
Harford Mall was renovated in 1995 and renovated again for an 18-month period in 2006 and 2007. After the second renovation, the mall changed its food court into a group of new tenants, which include Zach's Hot Dogs, Bonefish Grill, Five Guys Famous Burgers and Fries, and Qdoba Mexican Grill.
Old Navy, a longtime tenant of the mall, moved out in 2013. Its space was filled by Shoe Dept. Encore.
