The mall was expanded with an upper level between 1979 and 1981. During this renovation, the north side supermarket was replaced by a new J.C. Penney and Foley's, which had been enlarged, was expanded again. In this circa-1993 plan, SHARSTOWN CENTER has just been given a face lift and all of its anchor stores are operational. Unfortunately, an "anchors away" scenario would soon get underway.


The main mall entrance, redone as part of the 1993 renovation. Along with this remodeling came a new (well, old actually) mall moniker, SHARPSTOWN CENTER. The complex had opened as SHARPSTOWN CENTER, but had been renamed SHARPSTOWN MALL in 1981.

The restyled east entrance. As a matter of note, the official name of the shopping venue reverted back to SHARPSTOWN MALL in 2008. The official name would change again in 2 years...
