The 7 million dollar "dumbell plan" mall in 1970. At the time, it featured two anchor stores; Charlotte-based Ivey's and Greenville-based Meyers-Arnold. The latter, originally a 1-level store, has recently been doubled in size with a second level. Moreover, a freestanding supermarket and cinema Convenience Center has been built northeast of the mall proper. The combined parking area now accommodates 2,500 autos.
In 1978, the McALISTER SQUARE Ivey's opened a branch of the renowned Arthur's Restaurant & Wine Shop.
