The Brass Mill Center is a shopping mall located in Waterbury, Connecticut. The mall and its accompanying complex, the Brass Mill Commons, cost $160 million to build. At 1,180,000 square feet (110,000 m2), it is Connecticut's fifth largest mall, containing over 130 shops. It is located off Interstate 84 in Waterbury, Connecticut, just east of downtown.


The mall's slogan is "Mix it Up!" which is one of the major slogans used by the mall's owner, General Growth Properties.

Stupidity in the brass mill center mall


The Brass Mill Center opened in 1997. It comprises two floors, as well as a partial third floor belonging to a 12-screen movie theater. There are five anchor stores, including Burlington Coat Factory, JCPenney, Macy's, Sears, and Shoppers World. Steve & Barry's was a former anchor store, but this location was vacated when all Steve & Barry's stores liquidated in 2008. For the 2011 Christmas holiday season, Toy ZAM! opened in Steve & Barry's former spot. In 2013 Shoppers World opened a store in the former Steve & Barry's spot.

Before construction began, 118,000 tons of contaminated soil and 63 vacant and deteriorated buildings were removed from the site. The construction of Brass Mill Center essentially replaced the older Naugatuck Valley Mall, built in 1969 and located on the city's northeast suburban side. In the process, the Filene's (originally a G. Fox & Co. store) and the Sears stores relocated to Brass Mill Center. Naugautuck Valley Mall was demolished in 2000.

Lechmere was originally planned as the fourth anchor, but it never opened due to parent company Montgomery Ward closing the chain in 1997.
