Oakland Schools

This 110,000 square foot store was built in 1994 as a Builders Square home improvement store. This was a replacement of a smaller Builders Square store built across the street at Oakland Pointe in 1990. The original Builders Square later became Circuit City and Media Play, it is currently Value World and Harbor Freight Tools. This Builders Square was later rebranded HQ (Home Quarters) and a section of it was used as Steve & Barry’s in the mid to late 2000s. Currently it is Oakland Schools and Elite Sportsplex.

Summit West and Summit North shopping centers were built as part of the Summit Place Mall Complex. The Summit Place Mall opened as the Pontiac Mall in 1963. In addition to the 1,500,000 square foot mall, two shopping centers were built around the mall as part of the complex.

Summit West was built first. The first part, featuring a Chatham food store was built in 1972. The second part featuring Target was built in 1987. The third part featuring Farmer Jack was built in 1989. Pace Membership Warehouse was built in 1991.

Summit North was built in 1994/1995 with Builders Square (relocated from a smaller store built in 1990 at Oakland Pointe across the street), Best Buy, and Gander Mountain.
