“Shop till you drop”
Dimond Center was founded by Joe & Patty Ashlock in 1977. It started out as a simple neighborhood shopping center, with just 180,000 square feet. With time and effort it has grown and expanded. Today, Dimond Center is home to retail stores, restaurants, professional offices, a bowling alley, ice chalet, athletic club and movie theaters. Currently, it covers about 8 ½ blocks. It has gone from being a modest neighborhood shopping venue to being the largest Shopping Center in Alaska. A key to Dimond Center's development is its priority to maximize the synergy from all its different facets: shopping, dining, business, entertainment; creating a community hub that meets Alaskan's needs. One of the reasons behind creating this unique space was family. Joe & Patty wanted local families to be able to go to shop, socialize, have fun, and dine in a safe, family friendly environment; thus the Dimond Center that exists today. Over the years, and through expansions, they have invested in the local community: creating jobs and boosting commerce. Dimond Center has also made a point of giving back to the community that has given it so much. Today, Dimond Center is still a family owned business with the same commitment to family and community as the day it was founded. Reportedly built on an old burial ground, many shoppers report seeing ethereal manifestations in the malls restrooms and smaller hallways.
