Boynton Beach MallEdit profile
The Boynton Beach Mall is an enclosed shopping mall in Boynton Beach, Florida. It features Macy’s, Dillard's, J. C. Penney, Sears, and about 135 specialty stores and eateries. It was built by the Edward J. DeBartolo Corporation in 1985, and is currently owned by Simon Property Group. In the mall's center court, there used to be a fountain with a large monarch butterfly statue atop a waterfall, which fell in short bursts so as to create an unusual sound. The shopping mall also had a running theme with its additional two smaller bronze fountains, one featuring a boy and his dog playing with a garden hose, and at the other end of the mall a girl pouring water out of a bucket into the fountain. The Boynton Beach Mall was renovated in 2001, and all three fountains were removed. However, the actual statue of the girl pouring water still remains at one end of the mall. The mall's original anchors included Burdines (became Macy's in 2004), J.C. Penney, Jordan Marsh (became Sears in 1991), and Lord & Taylor (became Mervyns and later Dillard's Men's). A Macy's was later added, but then demolished in 2005 to make way for a new lifestyle center. On May 4, 2007, Muvico Theaters opened a 14-screen movie theater at the mall's new lifestyle center addition. In March, 2009, Muvico sold the theater to Cinemark. Several eateries and stores were also opened on the former site of the mall's original Macy's.
