Richmond Town Square, is a super regional shopping mall known locally as 'Richmond' or 'Richmond Mall,' located in Richmond Heights, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland, at the intersection of Richmond Road and Wilson Mills Road.[2]

Opened in 1966 as Richmond Mall by developer Edward J. DeBartolo, Sr.,[2] it was renovated, expanded, and renamed in 1999. This renovation took advantage of new and emerging technologies "in materials, as well as architectural and decorative innovations"[3] The total cost of the renovation was reported as US$100 million.[1]

The mall's anchor stores include JCPenney and Sears. Home to a 20-screen Regal Cinemas theater.[4] The mall is 1 million square feet (90,000 m²) and is owned by Simon Property Group.

In January 2015, it was announced the Macy's store was closing as part of a plan to close 14 of its stores nationwide.[5] As of mid March 2015, the Macy's store was shuttered, with all exterior signage removed.

Mall features

The Richmond Town Square Branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library opened in the mall in 1988.[6] Originally housed in a freestanding boutique kiosk, the branch showed significant circulation growth. The kiosk was forced to close in August 1998 due to a major renovation of the mall but the branch library reopened in September 1999 in a 1,200-square-foot (110 m2) location by the northeast mall entrance, next to Sears.[6] The Cuyahoga County Public Library has now, as of 2009, relocated to a nearby business plaza, off of Wilson Mills Road. The plaza is next to the mall.
