$100 million mall opens in Jonesboro.

The $100 million, 760,000-SF Mall at Turtle Creek in Jonesboro opened last week with more than 50 stores and designs on making the northeast Arkansas city that region's retail hub.

The mall includes J.C. Penney and Target stores and a 155,000-SF Dillard's department store. It sits on 73 acres at the intersection of Highland Drive and Stadium Boulevard in Jonesboro.

The mall is also the only enclosed mall to open in the nation this year, as other developers have favored open air shopping centers that they say evoke a "Main Street" feel. But Bruce Burrow, a principal of MBC Holdings Inc. of Jonesboro, which developed The Mall at Turtle Creek with David Hocker & Associates Inc., has said he developed the Jonesboro mall to combine the best of both styles, with plenty of natural light and wider corridors.
