Magnolia Mall was Florence’s largest and most elegant shopping center that was the showplace between Columbia and Myrtle Beach. The mall opened to the public in 1979 as a 600,000 square foot indoor shopping center and was Florence’s largest mall. The Magnolia Mall was anchored by three major department stores which included Belk, JC Penney, and Sears and featured more than 100 stores and services. The mall was near the intersection of two major interstate highways, I-95 and I-20 at David H. McLeod Boulevard which made it convenience for easy access to getting there.
The Magnolia Mall Cinemas was located on the opposite end of the shopping center inside the mall. The theatre was a three screen cinema that was first owned and operated by Plitt Southern Theatres and later on during the 1990’s Cineplex Odeon took over the operations of the theatre. From 1990 until 1995,it was under Cineplex Odeon. Then in 1995, the theatre changed operations when Carmike Cinemas acquired it until its closing in 2002 due to renovations for the upgrading and construction of Magnolia Mall.
