I was born and raised in the Aquidneck Island town of Middletown, Rhode Island, in a house about three miles from this particular mall.
Growing up, the Newport Mall was never particularly successful, and any serious shopping trip demanded a trek off of the island. Newport is a thriving coastal tourist city , and courts millions of visitors a year. A stretch of Thames Street a little over a mile long in downtown Newport houses hundreds of stores and restaurants ranging from national chains to local institutions, and it is and always has been the true cultural and retail center of this area.
The Newport Mall opened in From its birth, it was kind of a hack-job; the developers merely enclosed an existing s or 60s? Connell Road Connell Highway to the locals and added some extra sales space. The center of the mall had been anchored by a Food Mart store with a garish lemon-and-lime color scheme that was distinctly of its era. When the mall was enclosed, Food Mart shoppers were forced to somewhat awkwardly wheel carts of groceries through the mall to get to their cars as the supermarket only had access into the mall.
It would be replaced by a TJMaxx not long after the mall opened. Consisting of about , square feet and with room for around 40 stores, the mall was not large but was relatively spread out. The decor was decidedly spartan, consisting of exposed steel beams in the ceiling, a large glass atrium at center court in front of TJMaxx, and relatively standard-issue planters and benches throughout the mall.
The Newport Mall was also not located in one of the better parts of the city, surrounded on all sides by big city-style decaying public housing projects, and shoplifting was a terminal problem. During the peak of its life around or , the center housed about 30 stores, including Record Town, Waldenbooks, Foot Locker, Afterthoughts, Hallmark, Fashion Bug, and other stores that tended to flock to smaller malls.
The mall was barely able to survive throughout its entire year existence. The fatal blow came in when JCPenney announced they were going to close their store at the mall on December 24, When the Christmas sales were completed, the store went dark and nearly every mall tenant followed shortly thereafter.
In fall of , the enclosed portion of the mall ironically the exact area that was added in the expansion was demolished and the plaza was opened back up to the parking lot.
The southern end of the mall was also expanded and reconfigured, and an entrance was added to Admiral Kalbfus Road RI Anchored by Wal-Mart who filled the former JCPenney , Super Stop and Shop who demolished most of the always-empty southern wing , West Marine, Old Navy, a 99 Restaurant, and a slate of smaller tenants, it has been relatively successful in the past half-decade. Interestingly, TJMaxx and Foot Locker are the only two tenants who continue to operate in the exact same place they were located when the center was still enclosed.
The best I can find is the black and white satellite view below, which shows how the enclosed addition with the gray roofline with the white border was grafted onto the existing shopping center much of which has the black or white roofline. If you happen to know of some, I would greatly appreciate if you would email me and let me know.
Max May 28th, at 5: Also, are there still any department stores that still operate in Newport? Because, as far as I know, the only traditional department stores in the entire state of Rhode Island are the following this list excludes a future Nordstrom set to open in Providence Place:.
Caldor May 28th, at 5: It was a FoodMart, and was referred to as such. It was the second Nordstrom to open in New England. In the past there were more, as you would imagine. The Rhode Island Mall was once anchored by G. There have been 3 other major enclosed shopping malls in RI at one point or another: I forgot to also mention Apex, which I profiled on this site about a year ago.

I lived there as a kid from I still remember the salon pictures that hung on the outside of JCPennys. Was excited to have the Walden bookstore move in after rennovation so I could read magazines while Mom shopped.
What about the strip center where where Zayres and Ames used to be.
