Wonderland Village

Wonderland Village is an outdoor shopping center in Livonia, Michigan, United States, a suburb of Detroit. The center is located at the southwest corner of Middlebelt Road and Plymouth Road, approximately one mile south of I-96. Wal-Mart and Target serve as anchor stores.From 1959 until 2004, a shopping mall called Wonderland Mall (previously Wonderland Center) operated on the site. Then an outdoor shopping center, Wonderland Mall was enclosed and expanded in the 1980s (with a second renovation in the late 1990s). Competition from nearby Westland Center impacted Wonderland Mall. The old center closed in 2004 and demolished a year later for construction of Wonderland Village.The now demolished Wonderland Center had opened as an open-air shopping center in August 1959 on the site of a former airport. The center, at the time, featured Montgomery Ward and Federal Department Store (Federals) as its anchor stores. Other early tenants included S. S. Kresge Corporation and F. W. Woolworth Company, as well as a Farmer Jack supermarket. Federals closed in the 1970s and was replaced with Folands, a catalog showroom chain. Farmer Jack closed in the late 1970s and was replaced with a restaurant called Spaghetti Company in 1977. S. S. Kresge closed its store at the mall in the early 1980s, with Designer Depot taking its place.Other than the changes in anchor stores, Wonderland Center was largely unchanged, and by the 1980s, the mall was considered outdated in appearance; in addition, it was largely an outdoor complex, and was thus considered undesirable in Michigan's cold winter weather. The Schostak Corporation of Southfield, Michigan purchased Wonderland Center in 1983 and began renovations, enclosing the center and adding more than 100,000 square feet (10,000 m2) of retail space being added. After renovations were completed in 1985, the complex was re-named Wonderland Mall. Target, AMC Theatres, and a food court were added in 1989, while Service Merchandise replaced Foland's, which closed in the early 1990s. Dunham's Sports and Office Max were added in the early 1990s as well, bringing the mall up to 862,000 square feet (80,100 m2) in size.Schostak continued to renovate Wonderland Mall extensively throughout the 1990s, in attempts to maintain the center's viability as a competitor to nearby shopping centers, such as Westland Center. The mall's food court was rebuilt in the late 1990s, and new tenants such as American Eagle Outfitters, Old Navy and Bath & Body Works were added, as well as a discount store called Mazel's. Woolworth closed in 1997 and was soon replaced with f.y.e.; in addition, an indoor amusement park called Jeepers! was opened as part of an attempt to add entertainment options to the mall. The mall also introduced Cyberspace Safari, a marketing program that allowed patrons of the mall to surf the Web and learn about the Internet. The addition of these entertainment venues soon boosted mall sales 20%.Despite the increase in sales brought on by the addition of entertainment venues, the mall gained a reputation for crime, which combined with the demise of two anchor stores, led to the mall's downfall. Service Merchandise closed in 1999 with the chain; the space was originally slated to be replaced with Burlington Coat Factory, one of several anchor stores which was proposed but never came to fruition. In 2000, Montgomery Ward closed the last of its stores nationwide; many of the other inline tenants began to close as well.
