The Brazos Mall is located in Lake Jackson Texas nearly an hour south of Houston. The area that this mall is located in is also known as Brazosport with several cities that make up the Brazosport area. Lake Jackson has the largest population and the majority of the retail chains are set up at the corner of Highway 288 and Highway 332 Oyster Creek Dr including the mall. The mall opened in the mid 1970's and the mall has been successful. Most of the mall is full except for a few spots here and there, and the Steve and Barry's anchor is still dark. The malls owners recently updated the look of the mall, redesigned the entrances, and added the food court with a new cinema.
Here are a few entrances to the mall.
Ross; previously a Hastings Entertainment location.
Dillard's was originally a Joske's that was converted when Dillard's purchased the Joske's chain. The style of the building is very similar to the Greenspoint Dillard's that was once a Joske's.
JCPenney looks aged from the outside, but the inside sports the most recent upgrade.
Sears from one angle appears to be two stories, but it is only one story.
This mini-anchor was most recently a Steve and Barry's and was more than likely a Service Merchandise.
The Starplex Cinema and Food Court was added in the past two years.
This mini-anchor is partially occupied by a party store, but it was most recently the Dillard's Men's Store.
The entrance to Dillard's has wood around the entrance similar to a 1970's design. This store was built in 1979 so the wood trim may be original.
Palais Royal and the side entrance to the Powerhouse Gym are to the left in the Dillard's wing.
The food court is new and has high ceilings; it is a contrast to the rest of the mall.
A look inside of the former Steve and Barry's; this location looks like it was originally a Service Merchandise from the outside.
A faint labelscar from Steve and Barry's gives away the identity of this closed anchor.
JCPenney still has the mirrored glass.
The mall corridors are mostly very thin with low ceilings.
Sears and Chuck E Cheese Pizza. I cannot recall any other malls that still have a Chuck E Cheese Pizza.
Ross was a Hastings Entertainment store. The Hastings store relocated down the street to a larger location.
