A large-scale expansion was done between 1995 and 1999. Nearly 300,000 square feet were added, including a second Dillard's and new J.C. Penney. The existing Sears was also enlarged. The original J.C. Penney (in dark gray) was partially demolished, with the remaining structure reconfigured as inline stores and a 12-bay food court.
The Picnic Food Court is the second culinary complex to operate in the mall. The original facility, in the shopping center's Center Court, came in as part of a 1987 renovation. The current court, seen here, opened in June 1997.
