Marshfield Mall has a long, rich history as part of the Marshfield Community. In 1978, local merchants decided that there was a need for a Mall in Marshfield. The idea came to fruition in the fall of 1979 when the Northway Mall opened. The mall was immediately a huge success.
Originally, the Mall had a capacity of 259,000 square feet of building space and approximately 1,447 parking stalls. There were 36 businesses, creating a total of 350 full-time and 150 part-time jobs for the City of Marshfield. The original owners were primarily local people.
In 1985, the controlling interest in the Northway Mall was sold to Taggart Investment Corporation, a Texas-based real estate investment company. Shortly after that, the Mall was once again acquired by the original owners, who later sold it to a Michigan-based investment company, Malan Realty Investors in June 1994.
With the expansion of K-Mart in October 1994, the Mall gained 22,000 square feet in store space, 8,000 square feet increase in common area, and lost about 150 parking stalls. The expansion made the Northway Mall approximately 280,000 square feet.
Some of the original stores are still located in the mall including JCPenney, Younkers (originally Prange’s), and Regis Salon.
In 2002, K-Mart closed as part of K-Mart’s bankruptcy regeneration, leaving a large vacancy in the mall. This was unfortunate because K-Mart was one of the mall’s three anchors, along with Younkers and JCPenney. But the mall bounced back from losing the anchor.
In July 2003, the mall was purchased by Goldridge Group, a development company based out of Eau Claire, WI, and renamed "Shoppes At Wood Ridge." Goldridge Group invested $1 million in exterior upgrades to the Mall building in the summer of 2004 creating the attractive façade look, along with a 10,185 square foot café court addition, bringing the Mall to the 299,132 square feet that it is today.
In November of 2010, the Mall was bought by the current owners, Malls4u LLC, a group of businessmen and merchants. In 2011, Furniture and ApplianceMart and Ashley Furniture Homestore became the Mall’s third anchor store.
In 2013, the Mall was officially renamed Marshfield Mall. That year a two-story free Farm Playland was added in the center court for area children jointly sponsored by Marshfield Clinic and Marshfield Mall.
In 2016, with the addition of Kohl's, the Mall expanded 25,378 square feet of store space. The expansion makes Marshfield Mall approximately 324,510 sq. ft.
The many repairs and improvements have helped to make the Marshfield Mall the center of business in the Marshfield area. “It’s Happening Here!” has become one of our most popular slogans, representing the over 20 free events each year. Marshfield Mall has also been called “Your Place to Meet, Eat, and Shop in Marshfield” due to the friendly community focus. You’re always welcome at your Marshfield Mall.
