The Mall at Turtle Creek is an enclosed shopping mall located in Jonesboro, Arkansas, United States. It is notable for being the only enclosed mall to open in the United States in the year 2006.[2] Currently, the mall features JCPenney, Dillard's and Target as its main anchor stores, with Barnes & Noble. Bed Bath & Beyond, and Best Buy as junior anchors. The mall also features more than 70 inline stores, as well as a food court. All four bus routes of the Jonesboro Economical Transit system serve the mall.


MBC Holdings and David Hocker & Associates purchased seventy-five acres of land at the intersection of Stadium Boulevard and Highland Drive to begin development of The Mall at Turtle Creek. [3] Construction of the new mall ensued in early 2002. After three years of construction, Target and J.C. Penney both opened their stores in late 2005. Dillard's opened their store early in 2006 followed by a complete mall opening in March 2006.[4]


The Mall at Turtle Creek has a gross area of 750,000 sq ft (70,000 m2), with 230,000 of that of retail space.[5]

The mall is rectangular and stretches over a 73-acre (300,000 m2) plot. The developers wanted to give the mall a "Main Street" look. The 100 stores are arranged along two sides of the mall facing each other with a pedestrian walkway on each side and various vendors occupying the mid-aisles. The three main anchor stores are Dillard's, Target and J.C. Penney. Dillard's is located at the east of the mall while Target is located at the west end. J.C. Penney is found at the southwest end of the mall. Along with the three main anchors, the mall includes three junior anchors in Best Buy, Barnes & Noble, Bed Bath & Beyond (all along the southeast end). After opening, The Mall at Turtle Creek became the fifth largest mall in Arkansas in terms of square footage.[6]

Rouse Properties bought the mall in February 2013.[7]
