Newgate Mall is an enclosed shopping mall in Ogden, Utah. Opened in 1981, it features Burlington Coat Factory, Dillard's, and a Cinemark movie theater. It is managed by The Woodmont Company.

History

Homart Development Company built Newgate Mall in 1981. Its original anchor stores were Sears and Mervyn's. Among its tenants was the first Chick-fil-A in Utah. Phar-Mor was added in February 1992, but closed only seven months later.

In 1994, Dillard's opened its second Utah store at the mall. Between then and 1995, over 100,000 square feet (9,300 m2) of retail space was added, including Victoria's Secret, Lane Bryant, Bath & Body Works, Express, Inc., Famous Footwear, B. Dalton, and Applebee's. Another new tenant in this timespan was a larger location for Quilted Bear, a consignment shop that had previously occupied a smaller store within.

A year later, the former Phar-Mor became the first Oshman's in Utah. The store became Gart Sports in 2001, Sports Authority in 2006, and DownEast Home & Clothing in 2016. A 14 screen Cinemark "Tinseltown USA" movie theater was opened in 1998 to replace the mall's aging 4 screen cinema. Although Newgate Mall initially struggled with high vacancy, the mall's occupancy was boosted in the 2000s, particularly after Ogden City Mall (now The Junction) closed. Mervyn's closed in 2008 and became Burlington Coat Factory in 2013. Sears closed in April 2018.
