They have over 300 different mall locations in North America, Europe, and Asia. Their malls typically have the same anchor stores and food court options. Century III Mall is near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The suburb is called West Mifflin. The mall has three levels with a total of 1,290,000 square feet of space. There are 110 stores currently at the mall, but space for 180. Anchor stores are Dick's Sporting Goods, J.C. Penny, Macy's, and Sears.
In 1997 Century III Mall was renovated to help bring more interest to the mall. The shopping center was built in the late 1970's when steel was being produced. The mall is entirely enclosed. The area they chose for the mall was an old slag which grew to be an artificial mountain over tie. They did have to pump in concrete before the structure could be built due to some mining, which had gone on underneath the pile of slag.
Century III Mall has declined since 1999. While it was once a huge and important store, development in the Homestead waterfront area of Pittsburgh has drawn consumers away. The mall though owned by Simon is on the selling block. As of 2009 it was named one of America's most endangered malls. Still the stores are remaining onsite for the consumers who do attend the mall.
Currently the stores include Pacific Sunwear, American Eagle Outfitters, Aeropostale, Wet Seal, Charlotte Russe, Journey's Shoes, Lids, Foot Locker, Hot Topic, Verizon Wireless, Champs Sports, GameStop, Piercing Pagoda, AT&T, LensCrafters, and RadioShack.
The food court offers Charley's Steakery, Flamers Charbroiled Hamburgers, Subway, Italian Village Pizza, Manchu Wok, Gloria Jeans, and Gene and Boots. Gene and Boots is a new location to eat. Other places not mentioned include Arby's, Auntie Anne's, French Fry Factory, Orange Julius, Sweet Spot, and Tex Mex.
The history of the mall has been a long one for anchor stores. Over the years stores like Gimbels, Horne's, Kaufmann's, Lazarus, Marshall's, Montgomery Ward, and TJ Maxx have been at the mall.
Century III Mall is open Monday through Saturday 10am to 9pm and Sunday from 11am to 6pm. The mall is twenty minutes from downtown Pittsburgh. To encourage visitors to the mall there are gift cards and other events hosted during the years. Some of the featured stores currently at the mall include NY and Co., FYE, Body Central, Payless Shoes, and Borders Express.
