El Con Mall is an enclosed shopping mall in the city of Tucson
, United States
. Originally opened in 1960 as an outdoor shopping center, it is the oldest shopping mall in the Tucson area. It features J. C. Penney, Ross Dress For Less, Target, Burlington Coat Factory, Century Theatres and The Home Depot as its anchor stores.
An additional anchor space, last occupied by Macy's, has been vacant since 2008. El Con Mall is classified as a dead mall, because it is largely vacant. Besides the mall's anchor stores, only a handful of stores remain open, although several store and restaurants have opened on the periphery in the past five years.
El Con Mall is still owned by the heirs of its original developer, Joseph Kivel. Following the elder Kivel's demise in 1995, his descendants began renovations on the mall. A multiplex movie theater and food court were both added behind J. C. Penney, although no restaurants were ever opened in the food court.
