ALEXANDRIA MALL, circa-1973. The 527,000 square foot complex was anchored by Sears and Penney's, with Wellan's, Weiss & Goldring and Beall-Ladymon as its junior anchors. An in-mall twin cinema was housed in its South Wing.
The mall was substantially enlarged in 1985-1986. A 342,000 square foot Southeast Wing (shown in medium gray) added Dillards, Mervyn's and over fifty inline stores. ALEXANDRIA MALL now housed 869,000 leasable square feet. The in-mall twin cinema had been replaced by the freestanding Alexandria 6 multiplex. It was situated on a pad southeast of the mall proper.
