Washington Mall is an ailing enclosed shopping mall located in South Strabane Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania, just outside the city of Washington. Its anchor, JCPenney, closed in February 2007 and relocated to Foundry shopping center less than a mile away in March 2007; however, due to ground settling problems at the Foundry and financial difficulties with the property owner, JCPenney is moving back to the Washington Mall in mid-September 2008. Presently, remaining anchor tenants include Staples, Toys R Us, JoAnn Fabrics, and The Home Depot. Only JoAnn Fabrics and a Rite Aid actually have entrances from inside the mall. The mall was at one time the preeminent place for shopping in Washington. Up until the 1990s, it was indeed faring its own. However, as the crosstown rival Franklin Mall (now Washington Crown Center) was expanded and completely remodeled, Washington Mall was severely affected by this. There have been plans to demolish and rebuild the mall as a strip shopping center, although nothing has materialized.
