History

In the 1920s the world's largest goldfish farm was relocated to the area where the mall stands today. Construction of the mall began in the 1970s.[1] Westminster Mall opened for business at 9:30 AM on August 7, 1974,[2] with May Company, Sears and Buffum's, with J. W. Robinson's being added in 1975.[3]

Three of the mall's anchors changed names in the 1990s. In 1993, Robinson's and May Company merged to form Robinsons-May. As a result, the May store was rebranded Robinsons-May, and the J.W. Robinson's was closed and converted to J.C. Penney, which had moved from Huntington Center (now Bella Terra).[4] Buffum's also closed that year, becoming a Robinsons-May home store.[5] In 2002, the Robinsons-May Home Store was torn down for a new Macy's which opened that year.[6] When Federated Department Stores (now Macy's, Inc.) purchased Robinsons-May and other May Co. names in September 2006, Macy's moved to the Robinsons-May building, and the former location soon became a Target. Old Navy was added as well. In 2008, the mall underwent a renovation, relocating the carousel and constructing a play area in its place. The Grand Re-opening was on November 15, 2008.
