The Shops at Willow Lawn



Willow Lawn, founded in the 1950’s as ‘The Willow Lawn Shopping Center’ was Richmond, Virginia’s first shopping center. Since its grand opening in 1956, both the landscape and structure of Willow Lawn has evolved to keep consumers happy and stay current with shopping center trends.

Initially constructed as an outdoor shopping center, Willow Lawn saw the addition of a more traditional indoor mall section in 1986. However, 2005 was the beginning of new renovations, returning the property to the original open-air layout of yesteryear.

Today, Willow Lawn features an outdoor plaza used for several seasonal and annual events, live entertainment, as well as several restaurants, office space, and a wide variety of retail stores.


Conveniently located in the near west-end of Richmond, Virginia at the crossroads of Willow Lawn Drive and West Broad Street, Willow Lawn is proud to be the first and favorite shopping center in the Richmond area. Come visit Willow Lawn today!

Willow Lawn is owned and operated by Federal Realty Investment Trust, a national leader in the development of high-quality commercial retail spaces.
