SouthPark Mall, 4500 16th St., Moline, will celebrate its 40th anniversary with a ribbon-cutting at 2 p.m. Thursday inside the mall at Younkers Court.|
There will be cake and live entertainment, and renderings of proposed improvements to the mall will be on display. Construction is set to start in April, with a formal grand opening in November.
Macerich, owner of the mall, recently announced plans to remove the former Sears store and food court, making it more open to the outside. Plans also include a new access road off John Deere Road.
The mall opened on Feb. 27, 1974, with more than 65 retailers and restaurants, with Montgomery Ward, Petersen Harned Von Maur and Younkers as the anchor stores. JCPenney was added in 1978, and the Sears space and a food court were added in 1990, according to a mall news release.
The more than 1-million-square-foot mall now is anchored by Von Maur, Younkers, JCPenney and Dillard's.
