Jefferson Valley Mall is an enclosed shopping mall in Yorktown Heights, New York. Opened in 1983, it is anchored by Macy's, and Dick's Sporting Goods. It is managed by Washington Prime Group.[1]

History

Melvin Simon & Associates built Jefferson Valley Mall in 1983, which included Sears and Read's Department Store (later Jordan Marsh, then A&S, now Macy's) and Service Merchandise.[2]

Expansion plans were announced in 1996. These were to comprise the addition of 80,000 square feet to Macy's and an additional anchor.[3]

Service Merchandise, another mall tenant that closed in 1999, became H&M in 2001.[4]

In the early 2000s the mall went under a renovation changing the flooring and color along with removing the fountain and trees. In 2015, Sears Holdings spun off 235 of its properties, including the Sears at Jefferson Valley Mall, into Seritage Growth Properties.[5] In February 2016, the mall ownership was changed from Simon to Washington Prime Group.

Construction is underway to expand and renovate the Mall.[6][7] On October 15, 2018, it was announced that Sears would be closing their store due a plan to close 142 stores as part of their bankruptcy process.[8] Part of the first level is expected to become 24 Hour Fitness.
