History

Pembroke Lakes Mall was originally developed by Homart Development Company in 1992 as their third final property and the last regional shopping hub in Broward County. There were four anchors in the enclosed complex: 2 level Burdines, Sears, and JCPenney stores and a 1-story Mervyn's, bringing the same fashion as Pompano Fashion Square (1970). While JCPenney opened within the mall on October 28 of that year (along with another at Miami International Mall), Burdines, Mervyn's, and Sears all preceded a month before on September 19, 21, and 30, respectively. [1]

The JCPenney and Burdines stores replaced theirs at Hollywood Fashion Center while Sears relocated from the Hollywood Mall. In August 1995, the mall added its first Dillard's store between Sears and the main entrance, the company's second in South Florida (the first was at The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale) and a fourth multi-level store, also making Pembroke Lakes the second mall in Broward with its initial anchor format to do so, after Coral Square (1984) six years earlier. Only two years later, Dillard's expanded into the Mervyn's store for a second location, housing the men's and home departments, thus reconfiguring their existing store for ladies and children's clothing.

Burdines merged with Macy's in 2003 and then became simply Macy's in 2005, retaining women's and kid's clothing. Shortly thereafter, in 2006, A second Macy's was added between their original location and the food court, housing their men's and home departments. A four-story parking garage was also added next to both Macy's stores.

In 2016, GGP announced that the mall's Sears (closed on September 15, 2019) would shrink to make room for a square foot AMC movie theater, which opened in 2017. In Q3 2019, Round One Entertainment announced that their first (and so far only) Florida location would open in the former Sears at Pembroke Lakes Mall with an original opening date of Spring 2021. Due to the ongoing pandemic, construction was severely delayed. This venue officially opened to the public on June 11, 2022.[2]
