Description

Rhode Island Mall (Midland Mall, 1967) was a once popular shopping center that now contains only a half-dozen open businesses. Warwick Mall opened five years after Midland Mall and a mile to its north. Composed of more than 1,000,000-square-foot (100,000 m2) of retail space, it features more than 70 stores and a food court. The mall opened for business in 1972.
