A stroll through the Titusville Mall (formerly the Searstown Mall) showcases a variety of stores, services and restaurants.

The mall resurgence comes after the decline of the Searstown.

“The mall is a thriving mall that is going through a renovation and re-positioning to attract shoppers,” the mall’s website states.

Built in 1966, the 290,000-square-foot property is at 3550 S. Washington Ave.

Of its tenants, Valentino’s New York Style Pizza and Restaurant is the oldest, there since 1981. Runner-up long-term stores are Male Image and Titusville Ballet and Jazz.

Little Shop of Treasures, consignment and home goods is one of the newest tenants.

The mall’s largest tenants are Wildwood Antique Mall, Bealls Outlet and the Titusville Mall Cinema.

“Two stages of the cinema are being used for live performances,” said Lisa McCotter, the mall’s general manager.

The Milt Farrow Ensemble recently got toes tapping. Magicians John Daniels and Brandon Smith worked their magic.

A gaming room is being readied at the cinema and Beat the Clock Escape Room is coming soon.

An event center hosts large and small gatherings.

“We have weddings, bridal showers, baby showers and family gatherings,” McCotter said. “Two churches meet at the Event Center.”

Upcoming events include Stepping Out of the Boat: Believing God for the Impossible, women’s conference. It will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21 at Temple Baptist Church at 1400 U.S. 1. Tickets may be purchased at the store. For information, call 321-408-8488.

Reservations also are being taken for a September Fall Festival, a vendor show.

In addition, the fourth annual North Brevard College and Career Fair is being organized by the Titusville Area Chamber of Commerce. It is open to the public. It’s scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. Sept. 30. For information, call 321-267-3036.
