The Mall at Rockingham Park is the largest shopping mall in the state of New Hampshire, with 1,024,171 square feet (95,148.6 m2) of floor space. The mall is located in the town of Salem, about 30 miles (48 km) north of Boston. The mall is adjacent to Interstate 93 and the former Rockingham Park race track in Salem, and was the state's third shopping mall to be built. As of 2022, the mall currently features Macy's, JCPenney, and Dick's Sporting Goods. The mall is managed by Simon Property Group, which owns 28.2% of it. As of March 2015, the mall was Simon's highest grossing center, with annual sales of $2,105 per square foot.
Like the Pheasant Lane Mall in Nashua, the Mall at Rockingham Park is located close to the Massachusetts state line and draws many customers from that state. New Hampshire has no sales tax on most goods. The success of the Mall at Rockingham Park, which opened in August 1991, caused the Methuen Mall across the line in Methuen, Massachusetts, to close in 1997; it was replaced with The Loop, a "big box"-style center. The Mall at Rockingham Park also caused the adjacent (and older) Rockingham Mall to convert into a "big box" center, as Salem could no longer support two shopping malls. In 2006, the mall's original Macy's store (formerly Jordan Marsh) was closed with all Filene's converting into Macy's.

In 2011, Lord & Taylor converted the former Macy's, opening in March 2012. In 2015, Dick's Sporting Goods opened a store. Dick's opened October 2015. A new Cinemark Theatres opened at the complex.

On August 27, 2020, it was announced that legendary division Lord & Taylor would shutter.

  • Good for walking in the am in the winter snow. Bertucci's is good for food. Macy's is great ! The food court is very good.

  • Great place for masshole tax evasion
  • Very nice and organized, I don't come here often so it's nice seeing brand new stores and inventory come in on my trips there. However I must prefer Pheasant Lane Mall only for their selections of restaurants and stores that appeal more to me. But still a great alternative to go every once in a while definitely less crowded than pheasant lane.
