Micronesia Mall, in Dededo at the intersection of Guam highways 1 and 16, is the largest shopping center in the Western Pacific in the United States territory of Guam.

A mix between an outlet mall and an indoor, American-style shopping mall with 130 merchants, Micronesia Mall's 149,377-square-foot (13,877.6 m2) anchor is Macy's, which is the only Macy's store west of Hawaii. The mall is home to stores such as Gap, Gap Kids, and Levi's. In addition to a 24-restaurant food court and a 12-screen theatres featuring all stadium 3D/digital technology, there is a 24-hour supermarket, another deviation from the traditional American mall structure. Funtastic Park, an amusement park is inside the mall featuring seven rides including a roller coaster, carousel, bumper cars, Pirate Ship, Crazy Cans, Jungle Safari, Lady Bug and an arcade.

Other chains of retail stores include Guam's only 12,000-square-foot Foot Locker store, ABC Store, Folli Follie, Gamestop, Vitamin World, Bench, and KD Toys (formerly KB Toys).

Notable fast-food, restaurant and snack chains include Burger King, Panda Express, Cold Stone Creamery, Denny's, Great American Cookie Company, KFC, Pretzelmaker, Sbarro, Subway, Taco Bell, Tutti Frutti, Chatime, Coffee Beanery and Cinnabon.

History

The Micronesia Mall opened on August 8, 1988, a date chosen by its owners for luck: The number "8" is considered a lucky number by Chinese and other Asian cultures.
