This mall used to be a special place and always reminds me of when I was a little girl and going to the mall was an event. I do not think a Christmas went by that we did not take the obligatory trip to see Archie the Snowman.

Now the mall is run down and many of the stores are closing. Some bargain disposable fashion stores are still there.

I'm not sure if it is just a dated mall, if the economically depressed nature of the residential area where it is located has negatively affected it, or if the fact that nicer malls makes it pale in comparison has caused my tendency to avoid this mall.

If you absolutely have to look for something specific, the mall is ok. But this is no longer a destination mall-- a place to go and hang out and pleasure shop.

This mall is a smaller mall. There are three anchor stores plus some smaller ones. I shop at Bath and Body Works frequently. There is a Victoria's Secret also. There is a food court. They have several motorized vehicles available to rent for children while you shop.

There was rumor while ago that the mall bankrupted and one anchor store closed. Seems now like it is saved, but struggling. Some stores are empty, but people are coming back slowly. There ate more places to sit down and talk, so the mall goes back to be place, where people socialize and date. And shop, of course.

The mall is nicely kept on the inside but, there are only a few decent stores inside and no good food choices. Gross.

This mall is kept up nicely. Very clean and a beautiful carousel. That is where the good things end. It is near the "other side of the tracks". This makes shopping at this mall a bit perilous. Teens and young adults run wild. Many of the major retailers are gone and the food court is full of 3rd tier franchises. Someone was literally stabbed in the neck of the mall parking lot in 2015. In Akron? Go to Summit.
