Sears Century Plaza
Sears Century Plaza (also called Sears-East) was a 198,000 square foot, two-level Sears department store which opened on September 25, 1975 at the west end of Century Plaza, off Crestwood Boulevard and Oporto Avenue in Eastwood. It was the largest Sears store in Alabama.
Sears held its grand opening before the rest of the mall opened in 1975. It was the eighth Birmingham area store in the chain's expansion from downtown Birmingham into the suburbs and opened after the closure of the Sears East Lake store on 1st Avenue North. A 24-bay Sears Auto Center was also constructed outside the mall.
