East Hills Shopping Center is located at St Joseph's busiest intersections Frederick Avenue and Belt Highway just off I-29.
The East Hills Story began with a commitment to the community of St. Joseph, Missouri.
East Hills was originally constructed in 1965 with 416,000 sq ft., JC Penny and Montgomery Ward as anchors.
Since the original opening it has undergone many changes, including a major renovation and expansion in 1988. With the addition of the Dillard's and Sears Department Stores and 34 new storefronts, the size of East Hills increased to 676,000 sq ft.
The new design is seeking to create a modern, clean look, with clean cut lines, glass exterior canopies, new mall entry towers, more than $1 million in new lighting, and a huge fireplace in a new "sunporch café" eating and lounging environment.
Today, as shopping trends continue to change, East Hills continues to serve as St. Joseph's community gathering place while providing a top shopping, dining and entertainment experience that meets today's standards.
East Hill's department stores include JC Penny, Dillard's, Sears and Home Style Furniture.
