McALLEN - La Plaza Mall, a retail hub that has been in the Rio Grande Valley since 1976, will see major expansion in the coming years, according to a news release by the Simon Property Group.

New additions to the mall will include about 60 new specialty stores and eight restaurants, which are set to be completed by Texas’ tax-free weekend in 2017.

The first phase of the expansion will involve demolishing the Sears store in January 2016.

Further expansion will take place between Macy’s and JCPenney, which is expected to add another 20 to 25 shops and restaurants.

Two new parking decks will also be built. One deck will include a two-level, 500-car parking lot and will be located beside Macy’s. The other deck will be a two-level, 700-car parking lot that will serve JCPenney, Dillard’s and the mall, according to the news release.
