Hanover Mall is a one story, enclosed shopping mall with 80 shops and restaurants, including Macy's, Sears, J.C. Penney and Wal-Mart. The mall was built in 1971 and renovated in 1999. It serves local communities as a neighborhood mall of sorts, an alternative for shoppers looking to avoid the larger, more crowded malls nearby. Originally the mall anchors were Woolworth, Zayre and Almy's. Almy's closed in 1987 and its space was filled by Filene's. Zayre became Ames after the chains merged in 1989. Jordan Marsh closed in 1996 shortly after it became Macy's and was then torn down to become a new wing which housed JC Penney. Filene's was expanded about this time. Old Navy replaced the food court which had not seen enough business to remain. In 2002, Ames closed and the space became Wal-Mart in Fall 2004.
Hanover Mall is located off exit 13 of Route 3 in Hanover, Massachusetts.The mall hours are as follow, Monday through Saturday: 10am to 9pm and Sunday: Noon to 6pm. Usually WalMart tends to close at 10pm on weekdays.
