The Rock Hill Galleria is an enclosed regional shopping mall serving the counties of York, Chester, and Lancaster. Rock Hill, South Carolina is the location. The mall, which opened in 1991, has three anchor stores (JCPenney, Belk, and Walmart) as well as roughly 70 speciality stores. Cypress Equities now manages the mall.
The mall first opened its doors on May 16, 1991. The property was developed by Zamias Services, Inc. Three of the anchor stores (Belk, JCPenney, and Sears) relocated from Rock Hill Mall, which closed in the early 1990s and was destroyed in 2008 after losing those retailers; Phar-Mor and Walmart were the other anchors at the Galleria. The former closed after just one year in business and was replaced in October 1995 by a Brendle’s catalog showroom, although the latter shuttered after only six months due to the chain’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy case.
The Phar-Mor/location Brendle’s stayed unoccupied until 2004, when Steve & Barry’s took its place. Goody’s was added as an anchor in 1998, after being delayed from its original November 1997 debut date. Following the individual bankruptcy of each business, these stores closed in 2008 and 2009. The Belk store was rebuilt in 2013, and the JCPenney store was expanded.
In 2014, the former Goody’s became Home South Furniture, while the former Phar-Mor/Steve & Barry’s space became Revolutions, a bowling alley and bar.
Sears announced on November 8, 2018, that this store would close in early 2019 as part of a 40-store closure plan. Both Revolutions and Home South closed in the first half of 2019.
JCPenney announced on June 4, 2020 that this site would close as part of a nationwide plan to close 154 shops, leaving Belk and Walmart as the only options.
