Pierre Bossier Mall is an enclosed shopping mall located at the intersection of Interstate 20 and Airline Drive (Louisiana Highway 3105) in Bossier City, Louisiana. The mall, as is the city it is located in, is named after early settler Pierre Bossier. The mall was purchased by General Growth Properties, who built and sold it in the 1980s, for $26 million in October 1998.[1][2] It is currently owned and managed by Rouse Properties, one of the largest mall owners in the United States. Its anchor stores are J. C. Penney, Sears, Dillard's, Virginia College, and Forever 21, formerly Stage, established with the sale in 1994 by Horace Ladymon of the Beall-Ladymon Corporation.

The mall banned smoking on June 1, 1994.[3]

In 2005, Shreveport newspaper The Times reported that Pierre Bossier Mall was one of two local malls to increase sales, bucking the national trends toward the decline of traditional enclosed malls.[4] The mall faced increased competition from newer outdoor shopping centers such as the Louisiana Boardwalk but the hot, humid Louisiana summers helped to drive shopper to the air conditioned indoor mall.[5] In mid-2012, Virginia College moved into an anchor spot vacated by Service Merchandise in 1999.[6]

For mall walkers, a lap around the Pierre Bossier Mall including all the niches is a half mile.
