Georgia Square Mall, located in Athens, GA is a super-regional shopping mall serving northeastern Georgia, including students attending University of Georgia, the major university in the state and the nation's oldest public university (founded in 1785).

History

Opened in 1981, this two-level mall was originally noted for its retro design features including the foil-copper look used on the mall entrance to Belk. This was also one of the largest more rural malls in the country in the era it was built. Along with Belk, the mall opened with other anchors Davison's [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Davison%27s Davison's Department Store] , Sears and JCPenney. The anchors to the mall had originally been in Downtown Athens and relocated when it opened.

In recent years, the the retro design features have been tamed to more contemporary designs. In 2007, the mall began a renovation to the exterior entrances in the rear as well as an updated look on the interior. [http://www.georgiasquaremall.com/shop/georgiasquare.nsf/whatsinstore Information on Renovation] However, even with 2 overhauls, the mall is much like it was when it opened. The mall also has never lost an anchor. The only anchor change was in the name of Davison's. Davison's was converted to Macy's in 1986, Rich's in 1998, Rich's-Macy's in 2003 and back to Macy's in 2005. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rich%27s Rich's Department Store]
