By 1971, the complex had been fully enclosed and renamed WESTGATE MALL. A freestanding Higbee's Home Store has been built in the east parking area. An in-mall 4-plex, the Westgate Cinema City, is now open for business.
Zooming up to the year 1996, we see that a new (freestanding) megaplex cinema has been built. Kohl's is now a mall anchor. The two existing department stores were made into a Dillard's "double-header" in 1992.
