It is composed of more than 70 stores and restaurants in 560,000 sq ft (52,026 m2) of gross leasable area. Belk, and JCPenney, are the mall's anchor stores. The wing featuring JCPenney was part of a 1985 expansion. An Additional Vacant Anchor was previously a Sears which closed in 2018. In 2006, an outdoor concourse was added to the mall's front face, bringing in Old Navy, PetSmart, Office Depot and Ross Dress For Less as junior anchors. In 2007, the JCPenney store expanded greatly, taking over some of the space vacated when the old movie theater moved across the street.
The mall was formerly known as Colonial Mall Valdosta under the ownership of Colonial Properties Trust who sold the mall to Jones Lang LaSalle in 2007. The mall is currently owned by CBL & Associates Properties.
In 2015, the Office Depot was replaced with a Bed, Bath & Beyond.
