History

The Gardens Mall, originally called The Gardens of The Palm Beaches, was developed by The Forbes Company, based in Southfield, Michigan. On October 5, 1988, the mall opened with three initial anchor stores: Burdines, Sears and the second Macy's in Florida. Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue joined as tenants in 1990. Burdines was shuttered in 2003 as Federated Department Stores (now Macy's, Inc.), the owners of the Macy's chain, consolidated all its nameplates into the Macy's brand, which already had a location at the mall. In March 2006, Nordstrom opened on the former Burdines site instead.

In October 2007, the mall underwent minor renovations. The fountain in the center was altered and the center court's garden theme was replaced with a more modern look. In April 2019, Macy's opened Macy's Backstage.

On February 29, 2024, the Sears store was permanently closed at the mall originally opening in 1988 with the rest of the mall. No replacement tenant was announced as of yet.[1]
