In 1994 the Mall was remodeled and in 1996 the Emporium Capwells
outlet was replaced by Macy's
; both Sears and JCPenney
underwent extensive remodels. In 1998, the Mervyns
outlet was extensively remodeled to incorporate the brand's new image.Macerich
acquired Northridge Mall in 2003 for a purchase price of approximately $128.5 million.
