Crossroads Mall in Oklahoma City, OK. is Reopening Sometime This Fall!
It was once one of the greatest malls in the Sooner State. Crossroads Mall in Oklahoma City, OK. closed its doors back in 2017 and has been near empty, if not abandoned for the past 5 years. A shadow of its former self and we've all wondered if it would ever reopen. Well, if you haven't heard the news yet, Crossroads Mall will return this fall! That's right the old mall is being renovated, rejuvenated, and reopened by its new owners.

The property was purchased by Linn's Crossroads Plaza LLC last year for around 6.5 million with plans to turn it into a marijuana grow. Those plans changed after a school opened up in the mall. The new plans include building one of the largest convention centers in the state. The Crossroads Convention Center will boast a whopping 270,000 square feet and 3 floors of convention space that will offer catering, banquet rooms, and other amenities. Not only that, we'll see the return of retail and restaurants to Crossroads Mall in OKC!

KEEP SCROLLING FOR A TERRIFYING TOUR OF THE ABANDONED CROSSROADS MALL
When it closed back in 2017 and was abandoned YouTube Channel Ace's Adventures took their cameras inside Crossroads Mall and explored the remains of what was once a great place to visit and shop. It's super eerie with no stores or people around and all the stuff that was left behind. It's weird that a place that was once so active and inviting can become so scary and foreboding when abandoned. Once empty they almost instantly have that creepy, horror vibe to them and quickly become places you really don't want to go inside.

When I was a kid Crossroads Mall was the best mall in OKC, at least for me it was. They had the best arcade, food court, music stores, hobby shop, and all the other cool places I wanted to visit and shop at. We used to go all the time in the summer and right before school to do some shopping, get out of town and go to OKC.
It was always a big deal and we always looked forward to going to Crossroads Mall. The other malls in OKC just didn't seem to have as many cool stores, at least for teenagers, and were always more uptown. I'm really looking forward to seeing it reopened and what new stores and restaurants will be there. Maybe it will be ready for holiday shopping this year. I'd love to take the family, especially the kids to Crossroads Mall.
