Wikipedia: Rolling Acres Mall was a shopping mall located in the Rolling Acres area of Akron, Ohio, United States. Built in 1975, it originally included approximately 21 stores, with Sears as the main anchor store. Later expansions added J. C. PenneyMontgomery Ward, and O’Neil’s, along with a movie theater and food court. Montgomery Ward was converted to Higbee’s in 1986, and then to Dillard’s in 1992, while O’Neil’s became May Company OhioKaufmann’s, and then finally Macy’s. The fifth anchor store was Target, added in 1995. The mall underwent a sharp decline in tenancy throughout the first decade of the 21st century, resulting in the relocation of Target and closure of Dillard’s. Both the mall itself and Macy’s were shuttered in 2008, although Sears remained operational until 2011, and J. C. Penney as an outlet storeuntil 2013. Rolling Acres Mall was publicized after its closure as an example of a dead mall. It was demolished in 2017, except for non-retail ventures housed in the former locations of Target, Dillard’s, and Sears.
