Tifton was originally known as Tifts Town and was named after Captain Henry Harding Tift. The name of the town was later changed to Tifton. Much of Tifton's retail market was originally located on Main Street. When the Tifton Mall opened, many retail establishments were lured away from Main Street and into the mall.
Belk and J C Penney are anchor stores at Tifton Mall. In the past, Bobby Cartwright, the store manager of Tifton Mall's J C Penney, was awarded J C Penney's Chairman's Award.
