Shopping Centre
“Lots of upscale shops and stores (200+). Good anchor stores in JCPenney, Lord and Taylor, Macy's and Nordstrom. Lively arcade with super games and a bowling alley. 2 floors connected by elevators, escalators and stairways. Plenty of eateries in the food court and around the perimeter. Great restaurants just outside the mall like Season 52, Urban Plates and a Cheesecake Factory. Parking can be a problem, especially on the weekends. Use the garages if bad weather. Large enough for indoor walks, especially during winter months. Throw in the AMC Movie Theater and you have it all in one place. (4.5 miles from our location)”
