Westgate Mall is the only enclosed mall within a nearly 100-mile radius, enabling the center to draw from an extended trade area that reaches into Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico and Oklahoma. 

The mall first opened its doors in 1982 and has been renovated in 2006, 2007 and 2017.

 Nearly 80% leased, the mall is home to anchor and major tenants Dillard’s, Beall’s, Premiere Cinema, Shoe Dept. Encore and Forever 21 along with a JCPenney shadow anchor.

 The mall is further enhanced by several non-owned outparcel tenants, including Target, Best Buy and Dairy Queen.

Situated on 93.7 acres at 7701 West Interstate Highway 40, the mall is in Amarillo, which is in the Texas Panhandle and along the planned Ports-to-Plains trade corridor, a proposed divided highway corridor stretching from Laredo through West Texas to Denver, Colorado. 

Westgate Mall is at a prominent location along Interstate 40, the major highway in the region with an average daily traffic count of 84,000 vehicles.
