The Mall at Rockingham Park is the largest shopping mall in the state of New Hampshire, with 1,024,171 square feet (95,148.6 m2) of floor space. The mall is located in the town of Salem, about 30 miles (48 km) north of Boston. The mall is adjacent to Interstate 93 and the former Rockingham Park race track in Salem, and was the state's third shopping mall to be built. The mall now hosts 144 stores, with Macy's, JCPenney, and Dick's Sporting Goods as anchors with two vacant anchors last occupied by Lord & Taylor and Sears. The mall is managed by Simon Property Group, which owns 28.2% of it. As of March 2015, the mall was Simon's highest grossing center, with annual sales of $2,105 per square foot.
Like the Pheasant Lane Mall in Nashua, the Mall at Rockingham Park is located close to the Massachusetts state line and draws many customers from that state. New Hampshire has no sales tax on most goods. The success of the Mall at Rockingham Park, which opened in August 1991, caused the Methuen Mall across the line in Methuen, Massachusetts, to close in 1997; it was replaced with The Loop, a "big box"-style center. The Mall at Rockingham Park also caused the adjacent (and older) Rockingham Mall to convert into a "big box" center, as Salem could no longer support two shopping malls. In 2006, the mall's original Macy's store (formerly Jordan Marsh) was closed with all Filene's converting into Macy's.

In 2012, Lord & Taylor renovated and converted the former Macy's space, opening its only New Hampshire store in March 2012. In 2015, Dick's Sporting Goods took over Sears' second floor as part of a deal with the company. It was one of 235 properties spun off from Sears Holdings into Seritage Growth Properties in 2015. Dick's opened October 2015.

On August 22, 2018, Sears announced it would close the store at the mall. A Cinemark Theatres complex opened in 2020 near the site of the old Sears Auto Center, which is separate from the rest of the mall.

On August 27, 2020, Lord & Taylor announced it would close two dozens stores following bankruptcy, including the one at Rockingham Park.

  • Very nice and organized, I don't come here often so it's nice seeing brand new stores and inventory come in on my trips there. However I must prefer Pheasant Lane Mall only for their selections of restaurants and stores that appeal more to me. But still a great alternative to go every once in a while definitely less crowded than pheasant lane.
  • It’s a decent mall with some good stores for holiday gifts, it has a Red Robin inside
  • Well I never been to the mall itself I've been on the other side putting up a parking garage for daily precast driving truck for a kit transportation out of Hannacroix New York
  • I like this area for shopping. All new complex has been built up around the mall and businesses are starting to open up all the time. And one of the newer Market Basket's just down the street. All your shopping needs within a 1/2 mile radius. I think it's going to be a shopping Mecca for all to enjoy.
  • I really enjoy shopping at this mall. Great variety of my favorite stores. This mall also has a variety of places to get good food. Good large space outside for parking. Really enjoy it!!!! Just keep coming back!!!
