About

Westfield Franklin Park, formerly but still popularly known as Franklin Park Mall, is a shopping mall in Toledo, Ohio. Its anchor stores are Macy's, Dillard's, JC Penney and Dick's Sporting Goods. It also includes National Amusements multiplex theater.

History

Originally opened in 1971 by The Rouse Company, Franklin Park Mall was anchored by Ohio's first Hudson's, JCPenney and local department store Lamson Brothers. In 1976 Lamson's went bankrupt and the store was replaced by Jacobson's.

In 1993, Rouse significantly remodeled the mall and added a new wing anchored by the Lion Store. In 1997 the Hudson's store was renamed Marshall Field's, while in 1998, Lion Store was acquired by and renamed Dillard's.

The Westfield Group acquired the shopping center in early 2002, and renamed it "Westfield Shoppingtown Franklin Park", dropping the "Shoppingtown" name in June 2005. Jacobson's went bankrupt and closed its location in early 2002, days before Westfield announced the takeover. The former Jacobson's was demolished in 2004 and in its place a new wing, the centerpiece of a massive $100 million renovation, opened in 2005. It was at this time that a new National Amusements multiplex theater and Dick's Sporting Goods were built, as well as a new Food Court and Borders books. The Marshall Field's store was renamed Macy's in 2006. In 2005 the popular Build-a-Bear store came in.
