The answer may surprise you.
There are so many malls around town, and so many reasons to go to them.
Here are a few you should know.
*Mall of the Century: A mall that’s become a fixture in the southland in recent years, the mall of the century will soon be joining the northland at Southland Mall in Deerfield.
It’s the biggest mall in town, with a total of 1.4 million square feet of space.
The shopping center’s name is the perfect compliment to its location in the heart of town, as it’s right in the middle of downtown.
*Town Center Mall: This is the new “old” mall.
This mall has been a staple of the south and west sides since the 1950s, but the mall is now expanding, and the area around it is seeing a resurgence.
It will open in 2018, with 1.8 million square foot of space in the shopping center.
*Downtown: This has been the home of the north and south sides for a long time, but it’s now taking shape in downtown with the opening of the Southland mall in Deermont.
It has the same shopping center as the mall at Southgate Mall, with 2.4-million square feet, and is one of the busiest shopping areas in town.
*Lake View: This mall is in the midst of a renovation, but its location just steps away from the lake means that it’s a nice place to relax in the summer.
The lake is just a short drive to Lakewood Mall, which has 1.9 million square-feet of space and will be open in 2021.
*Benton Mall: The Benton Mall is a unique mall that has been in the business for almost 50 years, and it’s opening in 2019.
The mall’s size and location are the perfect mix of urban and suburban, with the shopping area in the west end.
*Northland Mall: Northland Mall is one part shopping center, one part resort and one part convention center, with over 2.2 million square square feet.
The Mall of the Month for 2018 is the latest addition to the area, and its location at the center of downtown gives it a special identity.
The area around the mall has also seen a resurgence in recent times, and will likely see even more growth in the years to come.
