A CONCORD MALL site plan, dating to 1972. The shopping hub started out, in 1962, with a freestanding Almart discount store. A regional shopping center was developed in three additional stages. The first (shown in black) opened in 1969. An outparcel convenience center (in light gray) was completed in 1970. The third -and final- phase of the mall proper (indicated in dark gray) included a Pomeroy's anchor store. This section was finished in 1972.
An expansion of CONCORD MALL was dedicated in August 1983. It added a 15 million dollar Strawbridge & Clothier to the front of the complex. With this enlargement, the shopping hub encompassed approximately 820,000 leasable square feet.
