Arbor Place Mall, the only regional mall directly serving the growing western suburbs of Atlanta, is located in Douglasville, Georgia, in Douglas County. Opened in 1999 like Mall of Georgia in Buford, which is also Georgia's largest mall, the mall was originally to be anchored by Dillard's, Parisian, Sears, and Upton's. The Upton's chain folded prior to the opening of the mall, but the contract to build the store was still completed, resulting in a vacant anchor when the mall opened. A home improvement chain named Dekor took over the Upton's site in 2000. The chain folded in 2001 and once again left the mall with a vacant anchor space. In 2003, JCPenney took over the site.
The two-level mall has been very successful and was the first to bring upscale shopping to an underserved area. Shoppers previously had to travel long distances to other Atlanta area malls. Rich's, long planned to open at the mall, finally opened as Rich's-Macy's in 2004, one of only two stores signed with the hyphen. In 2005 the Rich's name was dropped, and became just Macy's. Parisian closed its store in September 2007 and it is bought out by Belk. Belk took over the Parisian store on late of 2007. Arbor Place Mall was built by and is still owned by CBL & Associates.

  • This is a shopping mall with plenty of stores to choose from, however it is a lot of clothing type stores. They need to add some fun stores with more individualistic tastes. More odds and ends. Not just focus on clothing. Food court has plenty of options and there is a movie theater. Usually a good crowd here as well. Just feel like it is to big a focus on clothing.
  • This mall is super clean and usually no major issues. The people are amazing. Very good prices for the most part. I'd advise all to go for a family day to see a movie or even grab a bite to eat.
