A circa-'69 site plan. The mall's developer, the Youngstown-based Edward J. DeBartolo Corporation, was quite prolific during this time frame. I have counted four malls that DeBartolo opened during 1969-'70 alone.


Although the original footprint of WOODVILLE MALL would never change, the shopping venue was given a facelift renovation in the late 1980s. Here we see the mall as it was situated following this remodeling project. A new Food Court is indicated in medium gray. A new The Anderson's store has just replaced a shuttered J.C. Penney.
