Rushmore Mall is a shopping mall located in Rapid City, South Dakota. It opened in 1978 and fulfills the needs of residents in a sprawling western South Dakota/northwestern Nebraska/northeastern Wyoming market area. The center also does a thriving business with the throngs of summer and fall tourists visiting Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone National Park and other points reached via Interstate 90. The mall is currently owned by Washington Prime Group. The mall's anchors are JCPenney and At Home with two vacant anchors last occupied by Sears and Herberger's. Original anchors were JCPenney and Sears, each of which relocated from downtown Rapid City, and Herberger's, which originally was located on the south side of the mall.
Target was added as a fourth anchor on the north side of the mall in 1980, while Herberger's erected a new location west of Target in 1995 and Scheels All Sports replaced the original Herberger's location.
At Home is located where Target had existed before relocating to Rushmore Crossing strip mall. JCPenney temporarily moved into the vacated Target space in 2014 through 2016 while its existing store was renovated.
In 2012, the mall was taken to a servicer, due in part to JCPenney threatening mall owners to leave unless they were allowed to relocate to a larger store.
On January 4, 2018, Sears announced that they would be closing as part of a plan to close 103 stores nationwide. The store closed in April 2018.
On April 18, 2018, Herberger's announced that they would also be closing in August 2018 as parent company The Bon-Ton is going out of business which will leave At Home and JCPenney as the only retail anchors left.
