Kentucky's 2nd Larges
Mall St. Matthews originally opened in 1962, but it has gone through a lot of growth and renovation since then. Today, the mall includes just over one million square feet of retail area. This makes it the state of Kentucky's second largest shopping mall. Currently, Mall St. Matthews has 130 stores and four anchor stores: two Dillard's stores, JCPenney, and Forever 21. The mall carries basically everything you could ever want, from shoes to technology. It also features over 20 restaurants and eateries. Mall St. Matthews newest and most popular feature, however, is the 10-screen Cinemark multiplex that opened in 2013.
Whether you love the thrill of competing in a summer softball league or simply enjoy shooting some hoops during your free time, Community Park is the place for you.
