The Crossroads Mall opened in Portage, Michigan, in 1980. At the time, it was the only two-level mall in Michigan outside Metro Detroit. J. C. Penney and Hudson's were the first two anchor stores,[1] with Sears opening in 1982.[2] Mervyns was later added as a fourth anchor. The mall was designed by Richard Prince and Associates and was the firm's second mall design after forming a partnership with Victor Gruen to design Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi, suburban Detroit, MI.

General Growth Properties acquired the mall in 1999,[3] and renovated the food court in the early 2000s.

Hudson's was renamed Marshall Field's in 2001, and subsequently became Macy's in September 2006. Mervyns closed in early 2006 along with the rest of the chain's Michigan stores, and Burlington Coat Factory opened its first Kalamazoo store in the space vacated by Mervyn's.[4]
