Poughteys Galleria will open its doors on Jan. 6, 2019.
The mall is the brainchild of Michael Ruppert, who has been shopping at malls in Pascagoula and Paulding since 2010.
It will feature a fitness center, indoor gym and a large outdoor pool.
The Galleria’s opening is part of a plan to build more than 30 new stores in the state.
It also has plans to build a second mall in the city of Pauldsport.
The Poughtroughs Mall, a shopping center, will be the state’s first mall with a fitness facility.
The Poughtown Mall, also a shopping complex, is set to open in the spring.
