Fair Oaks Mall can be found at the intersection of U.S. Route 50 and Interstate 66 just outside of the town of Fairfax, Virginia. The Taubman Company developed the mall that opened to the public on the 31st of July during 1980. There were only four of six intended anchors operating at the time of the opening due to the recession.
The original four were JC Penney, Woodward & Lothrop, Hect's and Sears. In August of 1980 Garfinckel's opened; during the spring of 1981 Lord &Taylor was opened to complete the anchors. The largest mall in the area of Washington D.C. at the time it opened and the first in the area to include a British home goods store.
During 1982 Sears used its location in the Fair Oaks Mall to begin offering financial services to patrons. These services included real estate, insurance stocks and bonds from some of its subsidiaries. The owners of the Fair Oaks Mall tried to evict Garfinkel's and Raleigh Stores Holding, Inc which was a related company during 1987. The company claimed the owners of the stores had not obtained permission to assign the lease when some lines of business for Allied Stores, Inc were divested.
In addition to all of the changes at the Fair Oaks Mall there was a branch of the Fairfax library system containing ten thousand volumes opened in the facility during 1988. There is also a DMV customer service center for the state of Virginia in the facility. Individual security for stores and the mall security are complemented by the five Fairfax County police offers that are assigned to the facility.
