Arbor Place Mall, the only regional mall directly serving the growing western suburbs of Douglas County. Opened in October 1999, the mall was originally to be anchored by Dillard's, Parisian, Sears, and Upton's. The Upton's chain folded prior to the opening of the mall, but the contract to build the store was still completed, resulting in a vacant anchor when the mall opened. A home improvement chain named Dekor took over the Upton's site in 2000. The chain folded in 2001 and once again left the mall with a vacant anchor space. In 2003, JCPenney took over the site.

The two-level mall has been very successful and was the first to bring upscale shopping to an underserved area. Shoppers previously had to travel long distances to other Atlanta area malls. Rich's, long planned to open at the mall, finally opened as Rich's-Macy's in 2004, one of only two stores signed with the hyphen. In 2005 the Rich's name was dropped, and became just Macy's. Arbor Place Mall was built by and is still owned by CBL & Associates.

On Monday, November 26, 2007, there was a shooting incident inside Arbor Place Mall, stemming from the attempted robbery of an armed Brinks guard.
