The Mall That Started It All

For more than 50 years, Merle Hay Mall has been a dominant shopping and entertainment destination where families have gathered for holidays, birthdays, the changing seasons, and important life events. Merle Hay continually evolves to bring new, popular retail options to our guests as well as state-of-the-art entertainment, including FLIX Brewhouse - the state's only 8-screen, eat-in, movie complex with both a microbrewery and a restaurant.
