Anchor Stores

Traditionally, anchors were large department stores that brought the majority of mall traffic. Today, department stores are increasingly replaced by big-box retailers (Target, etc.), entertainment (theaters, bowling alleys, etc.), and non-retail occupants (apartments, offices, etc.).
