The Shore Mall was the first enclosed mall in Atlantic County.Fact|date=December 2007 Currently, its anchor stores comprise Boscov's, and Burlington Coat Factory.

History

Shore Mall originally opened in 1968 as an open-air mall called Searstown. Original anchor stores included Sears, Grant City and a Pantry Pride supermarket. Between 1971 and 1974, the mall was enclosed and expanded, with discount department store Steinbach being added as a fourth anchor store. A time capsule was buried next to the Steinbach store.Fact|date=December 2007 Grant City was shuttered in 1976 when the chain declared bankruptcy; by the end of the year, JCPenney opened in the former Grant City space. Pantry Pride was subsequently replaced with Foodtown, and the mall was renamed Shore Mall.

In 1987, a newer mall known as Hamilton Mall was constructed nearby; both JCPenney and Sears moved from the older mall. In 1988 Clover, a discount chain owned by the Strawbridge's chain, soon opened in the former JCPenney space, while Boscov's replaced the former Sears. Circuit City opened in the former Foodtown, which closed in the early 1990s. Both Steinbach and Clover were closed in the late 1990s as both chains went under; their stores at Shore Mall were replaced with Value City and Burlington Coat Factory, respectively. Circuit City moved closer to the Hamilton Mall in a strip mall in the 2000s, and has since been replaced with K&G Men's Wearhouse.

Redevelopment

The Shore Mall was sold in January 2006 to Cedar Shopping Centers, who has announced plans to disenclose the property and convert it to a strip mall. A year later, the Value City store at Shore Mall was among 24 locations sold by Value City's parent company to Burlington Coat Factory. On 9-21-2008 Value City closed.
