Post Oak Mall is a regional shopping mall in College Station, Texas owned by CBL & Associates Properties. Construction on the mall began in summer 1979 and it opened February 17, 1982. It initially housed 80 stores with four anchors. A second phase, planned before the mall even opened, was completed in 1985, adding more floor space and bringing the mall up to 125 stores and 6 anchor stores. As of 2015, it also houses a small food court and two restaurants. The anchor stores are 2 Dillard's stores, JCPenney, and Conn's. There are 2 vacant anchor stores that were once Gordmans and Macy's.

The first mall to be opened in College Station, Post Oak is the largest mall within the Brazos Valley area. At its opening, it became the city's largest employer, and nearly doubled its city sales tax revenues. Though the mall generated additional traffic and added to the demand on city services, it also generated $1 million in annual sales tax revenue, $120,000 in property taxes, and a half-million in taxes for the city school district. It is credited with creating the first major impetus for growing economic and commercial developments for College Station, which previously lacked a major retail community. The mall generates over 75 percent of the area's retail sales through its approximately eleven million annual visitors. It remains the city's largest taxpayer and its second largest employer. It is also the top employer of the students of nearby Texas A&M University.

  • This mall is small by most standards, but there is plenty of stores to browse to waste time: JC Penney's, Macy's, & Dillard's to Hot Topic, Spencer's, & Gamestop. The food court has a variety as...

  • I personally love this mall! It’s a cute community mall with almost any store you want/need. Plenty of seating and rest areas, as well as massage chairs. It has a variety of clothing stores for all ages, a decent food court, and it’s not too crowded. I would like to see a new toy store open since the last closed.
  • I am NOT from College Station, or Texas for that matter. I was on vacation. So am doing my review based on area I visited, not where I come from. College station is a fairly decently sized small town. All needs are met. The mall was great, it had a little bit of everything, including a Christian store that you don't see where I come from and I think that is awesome!! I wish more malls had that! Yeah, not everyone believes and that is ok! What I liked was the inclusivity. And there were a few card shops, or trading posts where teenagers might be interested. They also had a "library" where younger kids could read and learn the history around the area. I really liked this mall!
