Urban Retail Properties currently manages the Tanglewood Mall which opened during 1973. The mall can be found at the intersection of Route 419 and US 220. Exit 419 for the southern terminal of the Roy L. Weber Expressway is used to reach the facility. The stores that originally anchored the mall were Leggett, G.C. Murphy, Woolco, J.C. Penney and Miller & Rhoades. Three large fountains, modern lighting, tinted glass and dark flooring cover the mall.
In 1979 Tanglewood Mall lost G.C. Murphy and the space was redesigned to be a food court. The Woolco in the mall closed during 1983 and was converted into a catalog showroom for Brendle's. The French Quarter is an area of the mall designed to resemble a French Village. This area includes a gourmet restaurant and market. When the Valley View Mall opened in 1985 the interior of the Tanglewood Mall was renovated replacing the 1970's style with a more up to date interior.
Tanglewood Mall has been through at least three changes in the ownership; each change in ownership brought changes to the mall itself. In 1989 the facility lost Miller & Rhoads, during 1996 Brendle's left the facility as well. Goody's Family Clothing took the place of the French Quarter in 1996. A ten screen cinema was put in an outside building at the Tanglewood Mall in 1998.
Renovations and construction on the facility began in 2005 and was not complete until 2007. The inside and outside were given new appearances as well as space for a number of new tenants created. AC Moore Arts & Crafts opened during February of 2006 prior to the construction beginning where previous stores where. The former Brendle's location became TJMaxx although the location only opened to the outside of the mall now. Staples and another vacant space eventually became Stein Mart.
The second level of Tanglewood Mall saw the addition of Steve and Barry's during October of 2006. The remaining tenants in the nearly vacant food court moved to other areas of the mall eventually. Kroger is in an outbuilding and underwent exterior and interior renovations to update the store and compete with the opening of Ukrops.
Tanglewood Mall is open from one in the afternoon until six in the evening on Sunday. Monday through Saturday the facility is open from ten in the morning until nine at night. The hours of the stores in the mall may vary from that of the store itself and should be contacted individually to confirm the hours of operation. The Customer Service of the mall offers patrons a number of services to ensure they are comfortable when shopping.
Among the services at Tanglewood Mall are gift wrapping, fax and copying services. Patrons in need of wheelchairs can obtain them from the mall. There is even a lost and found to help take the stress out of the shopping trip. The customer service is also able to provide patrons with information on special events; this is in addition to assisting with registration for special promotions at the facility. Maps of the area and information about it and the public transit system in the area can be obtained from the mall.
