Oxmoor Center is a Louisville, Kentucky shopping mall located at 7900 Shelbyville Road in eastern Louisville.
Opened in 1971 on the opposing side of the Watterson Expressway from Mall St. Matthews, the mall originally had Shillito's and Stewart Dry Goods as its anchor stores. In the December 1986 the mall opened a new wing over the Middle Fork of Beargrass Creek to include a Sears store that relocated from 4121 Shelbyville Road. The land the mall was built on is a part of Oxmoor Farm and, due to the land being inherited as a trust which stipulated that it not be sold for a certain number of years, was leased to the mall. The deed restriction has since expired which led to the development of Oxmoor Woods subdivision, but the mall does not own the land it sits upon and remains a leaseholder.
Oxmoor Center once had Putters Park on the upper deck, along with the Split Cinemas. Both are now closed. Lazarus replaced Shillito's in 1987, and the Famous Blue Boar Cafeteria closed in 1995 along with Rax.
In 1991, a major reconstruction on the center of the mall was completed. This opened the upper deck, removing the closed Farrell's Ice Cream shoppe, and making a large food court. Then, in 1998, the front of Oxmoor was remodeled, and Dick's Sporting Goods was added as the front store anchor.
The mall currently has over 960,000 square feet (89,000 m2) and includes the anchor stores of Macy's, Sears, Von Maur, and Dick's Sporting Goods. The mall is currently owned by the Chicago company General Growth Properties.
