Learn about RiverGate Mall for your back-to-school fashion needs and more!

RiverGate Mall is your one-stop destination for all your fashion needs. Everything you need for your family, from children’s clothing to shoes for back-to-school to that special outfit and accessory for a night on the town, can be found at our wide variety of fine merchants. While you are here, dine at the RiverGate Mall food court and savor the array of tasty options. Parking is easy and it’s never raining or too hot or too cold inside the mall.

Anchored by Dillard’s and JCPenney, RiverGate Mall was founded in 1971 to serve northern Middle Tennessee. Many of our longtime guests and neighbors tell us they have fond memories of “cruising” the mall when that was in fashion, and we are proud to have the world’s first Underground by Journeys store as one of our fine merchants.

Last year, we celebrated our fiftieth anniversary and look forward to the next fifty years. With over 1.1 million square feet of shopping, RiverGate Mall is professionally managed by Atlanta-based Hendon Property Management LLC and has 24/7 security for your shopping comfort. It’s interesting to note that RiverGate Mall is actually in two cities, as the city limit lines of Goodlettsville and Nashville run right through the center of the mall. We are conveniently located just of I-65 at the Rivergate Parkway exit #96. Mall hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Friday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday, noon to 6 p.m.

RiverGate Mall Year-round Events

In the late summer, we host a Back-to-School event where over five hundred book bags filled with school supplies are given to children as you shop for those essentials for your growing children. A community favorite for parents and kids alike is RiverGate Mall’s annual Touch-A-Truck event, where kids get a rare opportunity to climb in big trucks, law enforcement vehicles, and, if the weather cooperates, a police helicopter.

Of course, we always celebrate Mother’s Day and Father’s Day with those special gifts for your mom and dad. And no year would be complete without a visit from Santa Claus who comes and stays at the mall throughout the Holidays for that special visit, maybe a letter of gift wishes and a picture with jolly ole St. Nick himself.

Valentine’s Day is always a special day to come and shop for that sparkly keepsake for the special person in your life. The Easter Bunny always makes an appearance and has a huge age-segmented Easter egg hunt along with photos with the Bunny himself.

RiverGate Mall has always enjoyed hosting a variety of community events and will continue to do so. Event times can be found on our website and are regularly posted on Facebook and Instagram. Watch our social media for new and exciting things to come at RiverGate Mall.
