Woodbridge Center is a two-level, major shopping center located in Woodbridge Township, New Jersey at the intersection of U.S. Route 1 and U.S. Route 9. The mall, owned by General Growth Properties, features Fortunoff, JCPenney, Lord & Taylor, Macy's and Sears and over 200 retail establishments such as Dick's Sporting Goods, Aeropostale, American Eagle Outfitters, and Gap. Although most malls have a food court, Woodbridge Center's eating establishments are spread throughout the mall [ [http://www.woodbridgecenter.com/html/MallAttractions.asp Woodbridge Center Dining & Entertainment ] ] .

The mall's location near Staten Island and the benefit of no sales tax on clothes in New Jersey makes this mall, along with nearby Menlo Park Mall in Edison, a popular choice for New York shoppers. The mall has gross leasable area (GLA) of 1,633,000 sq. ft. [ [http://www.icsc.org/apps/dmmdisp.php?dispid=NJ0640 International Council of Shopping Centers: Woodbridge Center] , accessed December 22, 2006] , making it the second largest of all Shopping malls in New Jersey, behind Westfield Garden State Plaza in Paramus.

Woodbridge Center's regular season hours were 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.

Mall history

The mall was developed by the Rouse Company and opened in 1971 with Abraham & Straus, Orbach's, and Stern's. In 1978, the mall was expanded with a new wing to include JCPenney and Hahne's. By 1987, the mall got a fresh new look through renovation. The stairwell in the A&S wing next to center court was removed, new flooring was added, new lighting was added, the mall entrances were redone and the fountains in front of A&S were either changed (the 2nd floor fountain) or removed (the first floor fountains). In 2003, the mall was expanded with a new Galyan's, which would later become Dick's Sporting Goods. Notable department stores that have closed include Hahne's (now Fortunoff), Ohrbach's (which became Steinbach and now is Lord & Taylor), Stern's (now Macy's), and A&S (now Sears).

In October 2007, the carousel ride has been relocated near JCPenney and Fortunoff. The train ride was also reconfigured to ensure both rides stay together at the same location. In 2008, two new outparcel restaurants, Bahama Breeze and the Olive Garden, are being added.
