History

Great Mall of the Great Plains was co-developed by Glimcher Properties Trust and Jordan Robert Perlmutter & Co. The mall was intended to feature a "value oriented megamall" with a mix of outlet stores, traditional mall stores, big box retail, and entertainment venues, comparable to malls developed by the Mills Corporation (which is now part of Simon Property Group). Construction began on the Great Mall of the Great Plains in 1996.

Originally slated to open in March of 1997, the mall did not open until August 14 of that year, due to leasing issues. Upon its opening, the mall featured several anchor stores: Linens 'n Things, Marshalls, Burlington Coat Factory, Oshman's SuperSports USA, Marshalls, Group USA Clothing Company, Foozles Bookstore, and Dillard's clearance center (the first such clearance center in the chain). Other original features of the mall included a family entertainment center called Jeepers!, a food court, and a Dickinson movie theater. Great Mall of the Great Plains opened with 150 stores laid out in a half-mile "racetrack"; the mall was also billed at the time as the largest outlet mall in the state of Kansas.

In an early 2008 Securities and Exchange Commission filing, Glimcher Realty Trust expressed a desire to sell the Great Mall of the Great Plains.
