Burlington Square Mall originally opened in 1969 as Holly Hill Mall and had four anchor stores. In 1999, the mall was bought by Colonial Properties Trust and renamed Colonial Mall Burlington. In 2004, the mall was renovated. The renovations included adding skylights, new stores, and new floor tiles. After the renovations were complete, the mall was sold again in 2005. This is when the mall's name was changed to Burlington Square Mall. Currently owned by Jones Lang LaSalle, the mall is located at 180 Burlington Mall in Burlington, North Carolina. Jones Lang LaSalle is a management company, and it is one of the largest third-party managers of regional malls in the United States.
Burlington Square Mall is a single-level mall and has space for four anchor stores, although only one anchor store is currently occupied. The one currently occupied anchor store is Sears. The mall has experienced some hardship with anchor stores due to competition with Alamance Crossing, which is a lifestyle center that opened in 2007. Belk and JC Penney both closed their anchor stores at Burlington Square Mall and opened new stores at Alamance Crossing.
