The mall is somewhat symmetric in shape. It takes the form of a rectangle and stretches over a 73-acre (300,000 m2) plot. The developers wanted to give the mall a "Main Street" look. The 100 stores are arranged along two sides of the mall facing each other with a pedestrian walkway on each side and various vendors occupying the mid-aisles. The three main anchor stores are Dillard's, Target and J.C. Penney. Dillard's is located at the east of the mall while Target is located at the west end. J.C. Penney is found at the southwest end of the mall. Along with the three main anchors, the mall includes four junior anchors in Circuit City, Barnes & Noble, Bed Bath & Beyond (all along the south end), and Steve & Barry's (north end). Circuit City and Steve & Barry's both declared bankruptcy in late 2008; both have closed.
After opening, The Mall at Turtle Creek became the fifth largest mall in Arkansas in terms of square footage.
