The Shoppes at Northway

The Shoppes at Northway, formerly Northway Mall, is an enclosed shopping mall located in Ross Township, north of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States. The mall began as a strip mall called Northway Shopping Center in 1953; it was re-opened in August 1, 1962 as Northway Mall, the first indoor mall in the state of Pennsylvania. Currently, the mall features over 30 shops, with Borders Books & Music, Dick's Sporting Goods, Marshalls,and PetSmart, as its anchor stores.Northway Shopping Center began as a strip mall constructed in 1953. In 1962, an enclosed portion was added above the existing strip, thus creating the mall. The original mall also included an aviary, which was removed in 1994.Original anchor stores included Joseph Horne Company, Woolworth, G.C. Murphy, and A&P. The mall continued to thrive until 1986, when Ross Park Mall opened nearby, causing many businesses to relocate there. Horne's and G.C. Murphy both closed in 1988 (the former being replaced with Dahlkemper's Catalog Showroom, which closed in the 1990s). A&P also closed in the 1980s and was replaced with Herman's World of Sporting Goods.G.C. Murphy was replaced with a discount movie theater, which was later purchased by National Amusements and converted to a first-run theater. A food court was added in 1990, featuring Rax Restaurants among its tenants. Woolworth closed in 1991, with Marshalls opening in the former Woolworth space in 1996. Herman's World of Sporting Goods closed in 1992, and was replaced with Borders in 1995; in addition, Dick's Sporting Goods and Value City split the old Dahlkemper's space. Old Navy was also added.In 1996, the mall was renovated by McNeil Real Estate of Dallas, Texas, which owned the center at the time. It was then sold to the Archon Group (also of Dallas), who put the mall up for sale again in 2000. At the time, the mall was at 94% occupancy. Since then, occupancy has declined once more, and plans were announced to convert the mall's enclosed upper level to a strip center. Under this plan, the mall would be renamed The Shops at Northway, and the movie theater would close. This construction eliminated the movie theater since a whole wall was knocked down. In 2007, new tenants were announced for the planned Shops at Northway, including a shoe store and a family play center. Value City and Old Navy closed in 2008, while the family play center (the Kid Company, which replaced the food court) existed only briefly. As of 2010, much of the upper level is empty, consisting only of Marshall's, Mamma Lucia's, Dick's, and the Shoe Carnival.The lower level is in a less depressed state, with Borders, PetSmart, Ritz Camera, Northway Dollar, Bruce's Music, Northway Shoe and Repair, Rock America, Verizon Wireless, and a hair salon still intact. However, a number of spaces (such as the recently departed Party City and Csonka Optical) remain vacant.
