The mall's initial layout had a single level with the anchor stores Gayfers and Montgomery Ward located at each end of the main hallway. In 1985, a food court and the third anchor shop, Parisian, were both added.

When JCPenney moved from the Columbus Square Mall to the mall in November 1994, an extension to the shopping center was finished. One peculiarity of this extension was that one had to pass through Dillard's (previously Gayfer's) to get to the addition from the existing mall. The firm filed for bankruptcy in late 2000, which led to the closure of Montgomery Ward.

In 2002, Rich's opened in place of Montgomery Ward. In 2005, the name was changed to Macy's.

In February 2007 after the firm merged with Belk, Parisian closed. It was stated in 2007 that the previous Parisian property would be transformed into a Belk, with plans for the store to open in late 2007. However, due to financial difficulties, the plans for a Belk branch were abandoned in late 2006.[2] The Peachtree Mall's owners purchased the former Parisian's shop back from Dillard's on Thursday, December 3, 2015, since a redevelopment was intended for it but never took place. On February 2, 2017, At Home launched in the formerly Parisian location.
