Welcome to the Greenwood Park Mall in Greenwood, Indiana, this has been anticipated so long, every time I go to Indy, I never make it to this mall, before it closes for the night, I made it this time! Minutes to spare, that is why it is dark, and empty, go on a weekday in the afternoon, and it will be busy as hell!
I posted this mall last year, just the sign, and under it "post coming soon", well, soon is now, this is the Greenwood Park Mall.
A major renovation took care of the former L.S. Aryes store by demolishing it, in favor of a lifestyle wing that included Barnes and Noble.
Greenwood Park Mall's current anchor stores are JCPenney, JCPenney Home Store, Sears, Macy's, Dick's Sporting Goods, Barnes and Noble, and Von Maur. There is a lot to do here, and much more inside.
The Mall opened as Greenwood shopping center in 1966 with original anchor stores JCPenney, Sears, L.S. Aryes, and possibly Lazarus, but I am not fully sure. By 1977, Melvin Simon & Asso., now know as Simon, purchased the mall and by 1980, changed the name to Greenwood Park.
Dick's Sporting Goods took over the former Service Merchandise location in 2005.
Unsure when Von Maur opened at the mall, or what the original anchor was, possibly Lazarus?
