Halle Brothers Co. was an original anchor. After their 1982 shutdown, their location was transferred to Higbee's, which operated the store until it was taken over by Dillard's in late 1992. It was a full-line location (without housewares) until 1998 when the Men's department relocated to the top floor of the former Polsky's / Jewel Mart space (see below). When Dillard's took possession of the North store, the men's department & housewares relocated back to the south store which was renovated in 2005-2006. Macy's originally operated as a suburban location of the Akron-based O'Neil's department store, and after 1989, a May Company store. It became Kaufmann's in 1993 until changing names again in 2006.

Polsky's, another Akron department store, used to be located where Dillard's North is today. After it closed, Jewel Mart occupied the main floor level. In July 1986, a Dallas businessman proposed opening a laser tag facility in the basement of the former Polksy's.[5] By July 1990, Rizzi's Ristorante and Pizzeria and Charlotte's West occupied the space on the half-vacant lower level.[6] Jewel Mart was gone by 1991 and the top floor remaimed vacant until Dillard's moved their men's store and started a housewares department on the upper level in 1998. Rizzi's and Charlotte's West were both gone by 2004, giving Dillard's the opportunity to renovate both floors as a Dillard's Women's store.

Summit Mall used to include a small movie theater. In July 1989, National Theatre Corporation (now Regal Entertainment Group) closed the two-screen theater at the mall when General Cinemas opened up a new theater at West Market Plaza. National Theater Corp. later opened a new theater in Montrose.[7] In January 2013 Williams Sonoma announced it would close its location in the mall.[8] Four years later, Ann Taylor announced that it will close at the mall.[9]
