Deerbrook Mall is a 1.2 mil. square foot mall located in the northern Houston suburb of Humble. It is at the major intersection of I-69/US 59 and FM 1960, near George Bush Intercontinental Airport. Deerbrook Mall is classified as a super-regional mall and is the only mall (for now) in suburban Northeast Houston. The mall is anchored by Macy's, Dillard's, Sears and JCPenney, along with a two-level Forever 21. The mall is in the middle of Humble's entertainment complex which includes restaurants, other shopping outlets, movie theaters, as well as communities, which creates heavy traffic and congestion during traffic rush hour and weekend rushes. Deerbrook is owned by General Growth Properties of Chicago, Illinois.


Deerbrook Mall opened in 1984 with over 120 stores, anchored by Foley's, Sears, Mervyn's and the first Macy's store in Greater Houston. The mall quickly became successful, attracting affluent shoppers from areas situated on Lake Houston including Kingwood and Atascocita, along with shoppers from the Spring, Sheldon, Crosby and Porter areas, and its trade area even extended to the Aldine, Greenspoint and North Forest areas of Houston. During the 1990s, the mall underwent a number of changes, including Macy's sale of all but one Houston store to Dillard's, the addition of JCPenney to one of its empty anchor pads, and a 24-screen AMC Theatres complex connected to the mall's "Silver Screen" food court in the central portion of the mall.

In 2006, the mall underwent another anchor charge as Circuit City relocated into the space previously occupied by Mervyn's which exited the Houston market. After Circuit City went bankrupt in 2009, the space would be filled by a large-format Forever 21. Compared to GGP's other Houston malls, Deerbrook does not appear to attract more upscale retailers, many of which are located near the Kingwood Commons shopping center in the Kingwood community of Houston, and could be vulnerable to competition from developments in Kingwood and eastern Montgomery County.

In 2016, Dick's Sporting Goods will join the mall's lineup, constructing a new two-story, 80,000 sq. ft. store across from Forever 21 on the mall's last remaining anchor pad.[2]
