HULEN MALL has one of those rare instances where a shuttered Montgomery Ward store re-opened as a Sears. This change took place in 2001-2002. Other Montgomery Ward-to-Sears conversions were done at Anderson, Indiana's MOUNDS MALL and Peoria, Illinois' NORTHWOODS MALL.

A site plan dated 20 years after the circa-1994 plan above. Between 2011 and 2013, the mall was given a thorough interior makeover. Moreover, a three-unit "outdoor dining component" was added to the east-facing front of the complex. Abuelo's, BJ's and Red Robin restaurants joined the tenant list.
