The mall has over 100 stores. The anchors include Macy's, JCPenney and Sears. Westland mall also includes eateries such as Fuddrucker's, Chili's, McDonald's, and more. The mall experiences about 10 to 12 thousand people daily from the Miami metropolitan area.
The mall, then named "Westland Mall" opened in the summer of 1971, after the mall was built to the east of the then standalone Burdine's Department Store. At that time its anchors were Sears, Burdine's and JCPenney. Its restaurants included a medium-sized cafeteria and a Farrell's Ice Cream parlor.
In 2015, Sears Holdings spun off 235 of its properties, including the Sears at Westland Mall, into Seritage Growth Properties. Sears downsized the first level for Forever 21 and Xfinity, and a portion of the former auto center is expected to become Panera Bread.
On November 7, 2019, it was announced that Sears would be closing this location a part of a plan to close 96 stores nationwide. The store will close in February 2020.
