The mall employs over 7, people. The eastern portion of the mall originally known as the Court has two anchor stores, Macy's and Bloomingdale's. Its spot was redeveloped as the Pavilion at King of Prussia. One of the complex's four food courts is also located on the lower level just past Bloomingdales.
The mall was originally developed by the Kravco company. The Plaza at King of Prussia, the oldest portion of the complex, opened in as a modest open-air shopping mall anchored by JCPenney , discount department store E.
Korvette , and an Acme "A-Frame" style supermarket. The Plaza prospered and by the late s had become a partially enclosed super-regional mall anchored by department stores JCPenney, Gimbels , and Wanamaker's. The Wanamaker's store opened in in what had been an amphitheater. By the late s, The Plaza consisted of a small, fully enclosed section connecting the three department stores and a sprawling outdoor mall featuring Woolworth's and Acme Markets.
It was around this time Kravco noticed a demand for more upscale shopping in the northwest Philadelphia market. The company embarked on a second mall, The Court at King of Prussia, to be constructed across the street from The Plaza.
In addition, Sears was added to The Plaza, relocating from Norristown. Sears was built as a "store of the future" and was completed along with an expansion of the multi-level portion of the Plaza. The outdoor portion of The Plaza was enclosed as well.
The Woolworth's store closed in The Plaza also featured two s style video arcades , each named Spaceport, and the RKO Stanley Warner later Sam Eric, and then United Artists Plaza movie theater which, in an era before multiplexes , had only one extra large 70m screen. This theatre was later split in half to add a second screen. By the early s, demand for luxury goods had grown across the nation and many upscale retailers were in a growth mode.
The company's dilemma, though, was that The Court was on a small piece of land and couldn't expand, while The Plaza was too downscale for these stores. Kravco decided to embark on an ambitious campaign to almost completely rebuild The Plaza to make it just as attractive to upscale retailers as The Court and to begin marketing the two malls as a single entity a pedestrian bridge and walkway connecting the malls was constructed around this time, though there have always been informal passageways from one to the other.
The former Acme Markets location was demolished during this project; beforehand it moved a bit down the road into a new building, with a strip mall including a Tower Records shop since closed. The new Plaza is fully enclosed and has two levels throughout.
The anchor lineup at both malls changed during the s as the industry consolidated. Stern's , which had replaced Gimbels, left and JCPenney moved into its old space.
The mall even featured an outlet of the popular New York City toy company FAO Schwarz , complete with a giant teddy bear, before hard financial times forced it to close in The mall served as the home of the Philadelphia Freedoms tennis team of World TeamTennis in and Whenever a tennis event was to occur, a temporary tennis stadium that seated 3, was constructed in the parking lot of the Bloomingdale's anchor store.
In , Simon increased its ownership of the King of Prussia mall from Lend Lease had bought its stake in the mall in , with Kravco, Simon, and three family trusts owning the remaining 50 percent at the time.

The ,square-foot expansion also included a new parking garage "with speed ramps, space location technology and valet service. Representative Brendan Boyle were present for the ribbon tying ceremony. In January , Sears announced that it's would sublease some of its space to Dick's Sporting Goods.
In many of the facilities that I visited, the price of care was determined according to a detailed checklist of services, and it was clear that the monthly fee was likely to change once he became a resident. My husband was admitted to Arden Courts at 1: His transition into the unit went as expected: The well-trained staff solicited my input regarding his more troublesome behaviors, and he began to participate in some of the community activities — a great surprise and relief to me!
Additionally, he was not allowed to lie in his bed all day as he was in his previous placement. At all times throughout this initial acclimation process, we were BOTH treated with utmost respect and caring by all members of the staff. I would be remiss in writing a review of Arden Courts in King of Prussia without specifically mentioning the multitude of caregivers — the dedicated individuals who provide the hands-on care around the clock. Each resident is truly unique in personality and behaviors.
The caregivers quickly learn what brings out the best in each person as well as how to avoid some of the triggers that can initiate the behaviors to be avoided. They calmly, consistently and even lovingly interact with the residents under their care. This is especially true in regards to critical medical questions. It should also be noted that Arden Courts hosts programs led by nationally-recognized authorities on dementia for professionals, caregivers, family members and the public.
Finally, the path through dementia is long, cruel and increasingly solitary, for both the patient and the family. You are not alone, however, as the Arden Courts family becomes your family. My friend and I visited this location in hopes of making it a new residence for his mother this place is horrible very unsanitary the food staff did not wear head gear or aprons the caregivers did not wear name tags or gloves to serve the food to residence and the place smelled of urine. My husband has been at Arden Courts in King of Prussia for over two months.
Emily Bova, the marketing director, was incredibly kind and caring in helping us make this transition from the hospital. The executive director, Nicole Groff, is always available to help, support, and listen. She takes a hands-on approach in helping residents and is sensitive to what each resident needs. The nurses, aides, and staff have been so kind and caring. I have been very happy with the high level of care, which is greater than I even expected.
The on-staff doctor and nurse who have seen my husband are superb. I feel very fortunate to have found such a good facility.
I have a family member who has been at Arden Courts for more than 2 years. He has had excellent care from all of his caregivers. Arden Courts is set up with 4 "houses" and he loves to walk freely from "home" to "home" as well as outside in the secure courtyard. All of the caregivers know the residents' names no matter which "house" they call home! He was in another personal care home before moving to Arden Courts and did not get the level of support he needed to manage activities of daily living.
I recommend Arden Courts to anyone who has a family member who has been diagnosed with dementia. They also provide great support to the family. My grandfather was a resident here. One night in February he wandered outside unnoticed and fell. He crawled around in the snow for 30 minutes. We were not told the truth initially what had happened to him.
