Bradley Square Mall marked a major milestone this week by beginning Phase II of the center's redevelopment. The mall opened its doors to the public on Feb. 13, 1991, and quickly became a community partner. This is the first renovation the 21-year-old center has received. The mall will remain open to the public during the entire redevelopment.

In May, Phase I of the redevelopment began with the start of construction for a new Carmike Cinema, open-air courtyard, enclosed connector to the mall and surrounding parking.

Phase II of the redevelopment includes a renovation of the entire center, with a main entrance that will characterize the center's new brand.  In addition, a new relocated food court to include quick services and full service restaurants with patio seating adjacent to the courtyard entrance to the cinema. This phase of the renovation will be completed by mid-November. 

Construction for Phase III of the renovation will begin in January.  This phase will include renovation to the entrances near Kmart; renovation of all signage; and significant improvements to the interior of the center, including upgrades to the decor, renovations to the public restrooms, new lighting and other amenities.

New eateries, national merchants and local merchants will be joining the lineup of over 50 stores at the center.  These new stores will serve to enhance the overall shopping experience. Belk is currently undergoing a major interior and exterior renovation. The mall's leasing team is in negations with potential retailers to replace Sears, and hope to make an announcement later this year.

Stacia Crye Shahan, Bradley Square Mall's general manager, said the redevelopment of Bradley Square Mall solidifies the center's position as a destination place serving the entire trade area.  "Bradley Square Mall has always been a place for our community to enjoy, and we are confident this redevelopment will deliver a new shopping experience as well as make the center an entertainment destination for not only area residents, but surrounding counties," said Ms. Shahan.  "Bradley Square Mall will truly be a 'one stop', must-experience destination providing excellent dining, shopping and entertainment venues for patrons of all ages and interests.  We appreciate the support our community has always provided the mall and we look forward to continuing to be a venue for local schools and organizations to host events.

Bradley Square Mall is at 200 Paul Huff Parkway NW in Cleveland Tennessee.  The 511,777-square-foot regional mall features a variety of over 50 national, regional, local retailers and eateries.  This includes anchors Belk, JCPenney and Kmart as well as American Eagle Outfitters, Aéropostale, Bath & Body Works, maurcies, Finish Line, Hibbett Sports and others.  The mall also benefits from a stalwart line up of outparcels tenants including O'Charley's, Steak 'n Shake, Applebee's, Royal Buffett, Regions Bank and Bank of Cleveland. Shopping hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday from 12-6 p.m.
