Mall of America celebrates 25th birthday

The Mega Mall is celebrating a mega milestone today.

25 years ago, Mall of America opened its doors. Since 1992, people from around the world have come to Bloomington, MN to visit the largest shopping mall in the U.S.

The mall is home to 520 stores, employs upwards of 11,000 employees, and has a nearly $2 billion economic impact on Minnesota.

Over the years, stores have come and gone, but the mall credits its success to its ability to evolve and become something that is beyond a place to buy clothes.

And the mall is still expanding. There are plans to double its current size by adding new hotels, a water park and more nightlife options.
