White Marsh Mall - White Marsh
White Marsh Mall is an upscale shopping mall in the unincorporated and planned community of White Marsh in Baltimore County, Maryland, USA. The White Marsh Mall is one of the largest regional malls in the Baltimore area, with 6 anchor stores and 142 specialty shops in 1,200,000 square feet (110,000 m2).
From 1972 to 1981, the planning and development of the White Marsh Mall occurred, with the Rouse Company as owner and developer on land rented from Nottingham, the site developer. In July 1973, Sears committed as an anchor store. In 1981, most stores opened, with Bamberger's, JC Penney, Woodward & Lothrop, Hutzler's, and Sears as the original anchors. In 1986, Bamberger's became Macy's. In 1992, Hecht's replaced the defunct Hutzler's. In 1998, Lord & Taylor replaced the defunct Woodward & Lothrop. In 2004, Lord & Taylor closed and was replaced by a Hecht's Home Store and a Sports Authority. In 2006, the original Macy's closed and was replaced by Boscov's, while the Hecht's and Hecht's Home Store were converted to Macy's and Macy's Home, respectively. Boscov's closed in October 2008 after the chain filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. However, Boscov's reopened in October 2012.
