RiverTown Crossings is a two story shopping mall in Grandville, Michigan in the Grand Rapids area. It is owned and operated by General Growth Properties.


It opened in the fall of 1999 with five anchors: Sears, Hudson's (then Marshall Field's, now Macy's), Kohl's, Younkers and JCPenney. Barnes & Noble was also featured as a junior anchor. Galyan's (now Dick's Sporting Goods) and Old Navy opened a few months later.

The mall has 120 stores, 9 restaurants, a food court and a 20 screen Celebration Cinema [http://www.celebrationcinema.com/?pid=30011] [http://www.celebrationcinema.com/?pid=30332&src=scroll] (Cinemark from opening to June 2007) movie theater. There is just under convert|1250000|sqft|m2 of retail space. Outside are more than 6,000 parking spaces.

The mall's slogan is "Mix it up", one of few major slogans that General Growth Properties uses with some of their malls.

Bus stop issues

Two bus routes operated by The Rapid (Interurban Transit Partnership) stop here: route 8 to Central Station seven days a week, and route 44 to Woodland Mall on weekdays.

On November 20 2006, the bus stop was moved from the mall entrance near Sears to across the parking lot, at a spot across from Men's Wearhouse at Potomac and Outer Mall Drive [http://www.mlive.com/news/grpress/index.ssf?/base/news-33/1164268402145990.xml&coll=6] . This change resulted in the addition of the nearby Meijer store to route 8, which also serves as the route's new bus terminal for layovers. Mall management requested this change due to rowdy behavior and several violent incidents. Route 44 was re-routed to serve the relocated stop and Meijer is that route's terminal point, replacing the mall.

On December 18 2006, the bus stop was moved to the south side of the mall, convert|30|ft|m|0 West of the main entrance. A new agreement allowed the bus access to this location with the stipulation that service to the mall ends when the mall is closed. This compromise between mall management and The Rapid eliminated problems caused by passengers present when the mall was closed. This new location also allowed security to better monitor the bus stop, and to easily respond to any possible problems. The Meijer stop continues as the terminal point.

Until May 21 2007, route 44 went to Ford Airport. Now, route 17 travels from Woodland to the Airport seven days a week, with 44 going from RiverTown to Woodland.
