Woodbridge Center is a two-level, major shopping center located in Woodbridge Township, New Jersey at the intersection of U.S. Route 1 and U.S. Route 9. The mall, owned by General Growth Properties, features Fortunoff, JCPenney, Lord & Taylor, Macy's and Sears and over 200 retail establishments such as Dick's Sporting Goods, Aeropostale, American Eagle, and Gap. Although most malls have a food court, Woodbridge Center's eating establishments are spread throughout the mall.
The mall's location near Staten Island and the benefit of no sales tax on clothes in New Jersey makes this mall, along with nearby Menlo Park Mall in Edison, New Jersey, a popular choice with New York shoppers. The mall has gross leasable area (GLA) of 1,633,000 sq. ft., making it the second largest of all Shopping malls in New Jersey, behind Westfield Garden State Plaza in Paramus.
Woodbridge Center's regular season hours were 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.History
The mall was developed by the Rouse Company and opened in 1971. The mall was expanded or renovated in 1978, 1987 and 2003. Notable department stores that have closed include Hahneâ€™s (now Fortunoff), Ohrbach's (which became Steinbach and now is Lord & Taylor), Stern's (now Macy's), and A&S (now Sears).
In October 2007, the carousel ride has been relocated near JCPenney and Fortunoff. The train ride was also reconfigured to ensure both rides stay together at the same location. There is a possibility the mall may be renovated in the near future. In 2008, two new outparcel restaurants, Bahama Breeze, and the Olive Garden, will be added.Anchors
