NORTH STAR MALL was given a major renovation and expansion during the 1980s. A Northwest Wing (in medium gray) opened in 1985 and was anchored by Marshall Field's. The Northeast Wing (in lighter gray) was dedicated in 1986 and included Saks Fifth Avenue. Foley's, on the west end of the complex, began business in 1981. The north end of the store was expanded as the two north wings were being built.
