The Mall of New Hampshire is a shopping mall located in the Lower South Willow neighborhood of Manchester, New Hampshire. Its major anchoring stores are Macy's, JCPenney, Sears and Best Buy. The mall has over 120 stores as well as a large food court and is 930,000 square feet (86,000 m2), making it the third largest mall in New Hampshire after the Mall at Rockingham Park in Salem, and the Pheasant Lane Mall in Nashua, which opened in 1991 and 1986, respectively. This was the first large-scale shopping mall in New Hampshire; initial construction of the mall was completed in August 1977, though it has since been dramatically expanded.

The Mall of New Hampshire is managed and owned by Simon Property Group.

History

The mall underwent a huge expansion and remodeling from late 1996 to early 1998. Sears was expanded in 1997 and remodeled. An older 60,000-square-foot (5,600 m2) Filene's was relocated to a newly built 160,000-square-foot (15,000 m2) store in a newer wing of the mall in early 1997. The old Filene's was demolished and rebuilt into a 2-level JCPenney in early 1998. The Lechmere closed in 1997 and became in 1998 a Best Buy and an A.C. Moore. The food court was renovated in early 1998 and changed to a 550-seat food court. In 2006 Filene's was renamed Macy's.

The mall is located just off the South Willow Street exit (Exit 1) of Interstate 293, and has convenient access from the entire Golden Triangle of New Hampshire and northeastern Massachusetts. Because of its location in south-central New Hampshire, the mall draws a significant portion of its customer base from Massachusetts citizens, as well as residents of neighboring Maine and Vermont, wishing to take advantage of New Hampshire's lack of sales tax.
