The Shoppes at Northpark is a shopping mall located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, with a concentration of high-end retail establishments. It contains 45 tenants comprising approximately 250,000 square feet[2] of gross space for lease.[3]

Thomas Morris purchased a 22-acre (89,000 m2) tract for the mall in 1967 at $2,500-an-acre, and completed the first phase in 1973, which consisted of a 26,000 sq ft (2,400 m2) Safeway grocery store (the largest in the state at the time, no longer in business)[4] and Northpark 4 Cinemas (which is now AMC Northpark 7).[5] In 1973 the new mall was located on (what was at that time) the northern edge of Oklahoma City.[6][7]

It was followed by an expansion in 1977 which added 140,000 sq ft (13,000 m2) of retail space,[6] and another expansion in 1981. Occupancy fell to approximately 50 percent as a result of the 1980s oil bust, but subsequently improved in the mid-1990s.[8] The mall now consists of a number of smaller high-end retailers.[9][10][4]
