Miami International Mall is an enclosed shopping mall in Doral, Florida in southwestern Metropolitan Miami, only half a mile away from the larger Dolphin Mall. The Miami International Airport is nearby, thus giving the mall its name. It was built by the Edward J. DeBartolo Corp. in 1982, and is currently managed by Simon Property Group, who owns 47.8% of it. The mall features retailers JCPenney, Macy's, and Macy's Men's Store.

History

Built in 1982 and similar to Broward Mall four years earlier and Town Center at Boca Raton two years afterwards, the mall's original anchors were Burdines, Jordan Marsh, and Sears (the latter opened in July 1983 followed by Aventura Mall the next month). Lord & Taylor was added in 1985 (likewise done at Boynton Beach Mall).

Mervyn's, which replaced Lord & Taylor in 1991, was sold to Dillard's in 1997. Jordan Marsh was also husbanded and refashioned as a Burdines men's, home, and furniture location. J. C. Penney built a store in 1992 (as with Pembroke Lakes Mall).

In 2000, Miami International Mall underwent an extensive renovation and celebrated its "Grand re-opening" in 2001 when the nearby Dolphin Mall opened with an international theme. Just like the Boynton Beach Mall, the renovation included removing its old features (the trees, fountains, etc.), and making it a more modern looking mall. Burdines also added a second floor to their original store, now used for their women’s and children’s departments. Both Burdines stores became Macy's in 2005 as part of a nationwide transaction, and the Lord & Taylor/Mervyn’s/Dillard's building became Kohl’s, September 28, 2011 (just like at Coral Square).

On August 23, 2018, it was announced that Sears would shutter as part of an ongoing decision to eliminate its brick-and-mortar format.[1] Several perspective tenants are in the midst of early on discussions.[2]'

On January 10, 2024, it was announced that Kohl's would close on January 13, 2024.
