Washington Square Mall is a regional shopping mall located on the eastern side of Indianapolis. It opened in 1974 with a renovation/expansion in 1999.[1] Today, there are over 80 stores and, Burlington Coat Factory, Dick's Sporting Goods, Sears, and Target are the major anchor stores, as well a movie theater.


This mall was built by Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. and opened in April 1974, supplanting Eastgate Shopping Center three miles to the west, which had opened 1957. JC Penney, Sears, and many prime tenants made the move from Eastgaste to Washington Square. L. S. Ayres, William H. Block, and Lazarus were also anchors when the mall was built.

Simon Property Group merged with the DeBartolo company in 1996. Simon renovated the mall in 1999. The mall faced a rough period of decline between 2005 and 2010, at which point several stores, including Victoria's Secret.

In February 2013, Indy Wholesale Furniture announced that it would be going out of business, soon leaving one of the five anchor spots vacant.
