Lake
“ Easton Town Center is one of the largest and nicest outdoor shopping malls in Columbus, with all the big name stores you’d expect, and a ton of excellent restaurants. With over 240 stores and services, you can expect to find all of the typical anchor stores you would expect, but there are also plenty of high-end brands on site. This mall is definitely worth checking out! Open Monday thru Thursday 10 AM - 9 PM, Friday & Saturday 10 AM - 9 PM, and Sunday 12 - 6 PM”
