About

Laurel Mall is a shopping mall in Laurel, Maryland. The mall was opened in 1979, and connected two pre-existing structures, the freestanding Montgomery Ward on the South Side and Laurel Shopping Center on the north side.

History

The mall was first named Laurel Centre Mall and included two anchor stores, Montgomery Ward and JCPenney, with a third anchor, Hecht's, added soon thereafter. Though small in comparison with most malls today, Laurel Mall has two levels and, when it opened, had modern innovations such as a rotating circular platform with four small stores in the center, and a glass-enclosed walkway over a roadway and parking lot between JCPenney and the Laurel Shopping Center.

In recent years, the Mall has been in decline, for various reasons. Many stores which were once staples of the mall, such as JCPenney and Montgomery Ward, have closed and given way to more "mom and pop" retail spaces. As a result, business at the mall has dwindled. Today, a Burlington Coat Factory occupies most of the former Montgomery Ward space. JCPenney has subleased its former space to International Furniture Company. Macy's has replaced Hecht's. On two occasions, sections of the aging parking decks have crumbled and fallen onto the parking lots below, resulting in their closure.
