Short Hills is one of the country’s first planned communities. It was actually Stewart Hartshorn’s dream to buy a 1,500-acre land in New Jersey, to just sit there, write and read books. This man was a nature lover, a poet, and wanted to live in a tranquil place. All of these happened back in the 19th century. After a few decades, the community evolved quickly. Residents wanted to have a shopping center, and this dream came true by the year 1949. It was that year when America’s Prudential Insurance Company bought a land that currently houses the Canoe Brook Country Club and the Mall at Short Hills. It was in 1956 when the first store was opened. It measured about 130,000 sq. ft., and later added 50,000 sq. ft. more. The market demand was indeed huge, and sure enough, the store expanded.
The most significant moment in history of the Mall was when Bloomingdale’s decided to open the biggest store in America on this particular site. In the year 1967, the said retail shop rented a space measuring 243,000 sq. ft. and filled it with furniture and decorative accessories. Since that moment, the Mall in Short Hills started to evolve at a fast pace. And today, it is an unparalleled specialty and department store, which offers a wide range of products and services for the people of New Jersey and other nearby places.
