This is the first of two different South Park Mall posts and the first of five new malls to be featured on my blog. Southpark Mall San Antonio is the main mall off of I-35 south and Military that serves the south areas of San Antonio. South Park Mall has Sears, JCPenney, Macy's, Bealls, and Anna's Linens as anchors. The mall is almost full and seems to be too small for such a large population in the nearby area. The closing of nearby McCreless Mall has helped to fuel business at the mall. Mervyn's (the only empty anchor) lasted here until the last round of Texas closings shortly before the company completely closed in 2008. The malls opening date is listed as 1968 on Wikipedia.
