Swansea Mall opened with only Edgars and Sears as its anchors in approximately 1975. There was an arcade and a movie theater with four screens in the mall at the time it opened. About 1979 a major expansion added Apex and Caldor as anchors to the Swansea Mall. The original mall had two free standing stores to the south of it; these were Service Merchandise and Toys R Us.
At the end of the 1980's the theater closed and Jordan Marsh replaced Edgars which had gone out of business. Macy's later replaced the Jordan Marsh and Caldor closed. In 2001 Apex also closed and a small food court opened. Wal-mart replaced Caldor in the Swansea Mall.
Swansea Mall is located at 262 Swansea Mall Drive Suite 775. The mall is open from ten in the morning until nine at night Monday through Saturday. On Sunday the mall opens at eleven in the morning and closes at six in the evening. The food court is located near Wal-mart and has kiddie rides to entertain the children while you relax.
