Fashion Square Mall is an enclosed shopping mall located in the northern edge of Saginaw Charter Township, with Kochville Township just to the north. It lies within the boundaries of M-84 (Bay Road) to the west, Tittabawassee Road to the north, Fashion Square Blvd. to the east, and Schust Road to the south. The mall serves Saginaw Charter Township, as well as the city of Saginaw and surrounding suburban areas. It features more than 100 tenants, including a food court, and its anchor stores are JCPenney, Macy's and Sears. CBL & Associates Properties manages Fashion Square Mall.
When Fashion Square Mall opened in 1972, it featured two major anchor stores: JCPenney and Sears, at the southern and northern ends, respectively, with a straight corridor connecting the two. Two smaller, local department stores were also placed off to the side: Heavenrich's was adjacent to JCPenney, and Wiechmann's was located on a side hallway near Sears. Hudson's, a chain based in Detroit, Michigan, was added in 1976 to the eastern end, as a third major anchor.
Heavenrich's closed in the 1980s, with Dunham's Sports eventually taking its place. Wiechmann's remained in operation until the early 1990s, when its space was replaced with a food court. A $10 million mall-wide renovation was completed in 2001, with the addition of new seating areas, family restrooms, and automatic doors. The same year, reflecting nameplate consolidation by Hudson's parent Target Corp., the mall's eastern anchor was re-branded as Marshall Field's, and by 2006, Marshall Field's would be among several nameplates to be converted to the Macy's name. Dunham's Sports also moved out in the 2000s, with Steve & Barry's taking its place in 2005. Steve & Barry's closed in December 2008 after the chain declared bankruptcy. McDonald's closed its food court location in January 2009, as did a Garfield's restaurant in May, only six months after opening in a space vacated by Ruby Tuesday.
