History
Quaker Bridge Mall opened in 1975 with 4 anchors: Bamberger's, Hahne's, JCPenney and Sears. The mall's existence helped to spur growth along the Route 1 corridor with the opening of additional shopping and strip centers, as well as the reconstruction of numerous intersections on Route 1 to accommodate the rising levels in traffic. Department store changes took place in 1986 and 1990 when Bamberger's converted to Macy's and the closing of Hahne's allowed for the opening of Lord and Taylor. In 1988-89, the mall was heavily renovated. New flooring was added, new lighting was added, new seating areas added, the child's play area in the Sears wing was removed in favor of a planter and seating area, the majority of the fountains were removed, the mall received a paint job and the mall entrances facing Route 1 were redesigned. Except for an expansion to Lord and Taylor in 2001 and the full removal of the fountains in 1999, there have been little changes to Quaker Bridge Mall.

Expansion
A proposed 600,000-square-foot (56,000 m 2) expansion project, would add Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom, along with as many as 100 new stores and restaurants. Nordstrom's two-level, 144,000-square-foot (13,400 m 2) store will be the fifth Nordstrom store in New Jersey. Neiman Marcus is planning to occupy about 90,000 square feet (8,400 m 2) on two levels. Due to the slowed economic climate, the mall renovations are moving slowly. The township approved the new JCPenney building and parking deck in 2008. On October 25, 2010, the Quaker Bridge Mall received approval from Lawrence Township to build the expansion.
