Dillard’s (Little Rock, Ark.) will construct a new, larger store to replace its existing operations at South Plains Mall in Lubbock, Texas. The new 220,000-square-foot flagship will take over the former Sears site at the mall, replacing the two locations Dillard’s currently occupies within the complex.

“We are pleased to enhance our presence at South Plains Mall, further solidifying the center as one of West Texas’ premier shopping destinations,” Dillard’s CEO William T. Dillard II said in in a statement released by the mall’s operator, Macerich (Santa Monica, Calif.) “This announcement underscores and celebrates our 50-year service commitment to our Lubbock-area customers.” (Dillard’s opened its South Plains Mall store in July 1972.)

The new store will feature Dillard’s latest enhancements in store design, merchandising and technology and feature a lineup of brands tailored specifically to the tastes and preferences of Dillard’s West Texas customers, the retailer said. Construction is slated to begin immediately, with an anticipated opening date in early 2024.

South Plains Mall is a regional shopping, dining and entertainment center featuring a variety of specialty stores, including JCPenney, H&M, Pandora, PINK and Hollister. It is also home to restaurants including The Cheesecake Factory, Uncle Julio’s, Bubba’s 33, Olive Garden, Jamba and Chick-fil-A, plus Premiere Cinemas & IMAX.

In addition to the Lubbock locale, Dillard’s operates 248 other department stores and 28 clearance centers in 29 states.
