Southridge Mall is a regional shopping mall in the Milwaukee suburb of Greendale and Greenfield, WI with current anchor stores Boston Store, JCPenney, Kohl's, Sears, and Macy's. At square footage spanning over 1.2 million square feet, this is the biggest mall in the state of Wisconsin.
This is the only mall in the Milwaukee area to have five anchor stores.
Southridge opened in 1970 with original anchor store featuring Wisconsin's own Gimbels, Boston Store, and JCPenney, as well as Sears and F.W. Woolworth.
When Gimbel's closed in 1987, Younker's opened in the space, but later closed when Bergner's bought Carson's of Chicago and Boston Store merged, leaving only one Boston Store in the mall.
The former Gimbel's and younker's space is now Macy's
Macy's is in the former Gimbel's/ Younker's store, Steve & Barry's and Linen's N' Things filled in the mall in 2004, but both closed when the chains went bankrupt.
Here are pictures of the mall from October 2013:

Here are some vintage pictures that shows the malls history, the interior, and original anchor stores, these were hanging in one of the family center halls.
This is a very nice mall in the Milwaukee suburbs and is a pleasure to shop.
