I refer to this as the mall that time and the Triad forgotten.
The Westchester Mall opened to the public on Wednesday, April 22, 1970. The mall was the first enclosed shopping mall in High Point and was anchored by Belk, JC Penney and Thalhimers ( a regional department store that operated in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee, that would eventually become Macy’s) A photo of that store can be found by clicking HERE
The mall remained a viable shopping destination until 1995 when Oak Hollow Mall (another dead mall that I will be covering on this blog in the coming days) opened up a few miles away and took with it JC Penney and Belk, leaving the Westchester Mall anchorless.
Today the mall is called Towne Centre and is home to a couple of churches and a beauty parlor. The mall is also connected to an assisted living center called Westchester Village.
