Telling by the name, you might think New York, but in actuality, Times Square Mall is in Mt. Vernon, IL, around four hours from Chicago, your closer to Memphis, TN and is on Route 15 and Interstate 57.
The malls current anchor stores are JCPenney, Hobby Lobby, Ross Dress For Less, Big Lots, Dunham's Sports, and Peebles.
The mall looked like at the time it opened, an original anchor store was Kmart before it relocated down the street.
Sears announced it would close the mall store in late 2013.
In November 2013, it was announced that the mall would receive a 12 million dollar renovation that included the former Sears store being divided into Hobby Lobby and Ross.
Here are pictures of the mall from August 2013:
